In the last seven 10 days Xorg crashed three times with a signal 11 
spontaneously. This is the backtrace I found in the logfile:

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11.  Server aborting

All three crashes happened when I was loading a page in Firefox and after 
the nightly Firefox builds got switched to Cairo as their rendering backend 
so I wonder if Cairo could somehow trigger this.

I'm running Fedora Core Rawhide with the following Xorg packages:

I'm using the open source nv driver with the AccelMethod set to EXA and the 
'load "dri"' and 'load "glx"' lines commented out.
