What's extremely strange is that it works sometimes and other times gives me
this problem.  If it looks like it is going to fail (I get the keyboard
error and I have a Windows cursor over the X cursor) then I can sometimes
alt+tab out and about 50% of the time the X server is still running, so I
can alt+tab back in and it will then work for awhile.
