I have been told that an app can't crash X. So it is an X driver bug. I 
had frequent X crashes under wine gcad and other programs. my uinichrome 
built in hardware did not work with the xorg latest driver for it. I 
replaced with a Geforce fx 5200 and all is stable except ctrl alt += 
does not zoom with the nvidia drivers but opengl works but I only have 
1280x1024 resolution on a 17" LCD. Non nvidia drivers offer many 
resolutions but opengl does not function.

File an xorg bug.
