X server crashing

I ditched Kde and went with Xfce.  Whatever was causing the null pointer problem when starting Kde either doesn't exist under Xfce, or Xfce doesn't care and is handling the situation gracefully.

It seems X does not check for null pointers so instead of doing something 
gracefull it crashes.

If you are using parrallel ATA, there was a bug in PATA that was fixed 
about 2 weeks after 13.37 came out. Suggest either change the kernel
config file to use the "obsolete ATA" instead of SCSI and recompile,
(remember also to change fstab from sdxx to hdxx), or get a newer kernel.
