* A GLX/DRI crash which looks like bug 28181 (which btw shouldn't happen with
-> KMS is uf. no option for me: It fully garbels my screen, though reported for
long I am no more in hope for a resolution (no answer there)

* xorg_backtrace_gdb() forking and hanging. AFAIK this hasn't landed upstream
yet, so it's an openSUSE issue => NOTOURBUG.
-> How to report? Is it perhaps a gdb bug? I have not got any answer on my last
12 openSUSE bug reports. Perhaps you would have better luck!

* Why does it hang? Switching the vt needs to be kept working in some way even
if it hangs. Why not have a rescue thread with a primitive but robust loop? Or
do we need kernel mode vt-switching rather than the anyhow dispensable kernel
mode setting?
