Thanks very much for reporting this problem.

Unfortunately, I can't reproduce it, and the stacktrace is not as helpful as 
it might be as the crash is occurring in a dll, but the stacktrace doesn't 
record which dll loaded at what address...

Following the instructions at [1] to use gdb to get a backtrace for the X 
server when it crashes would be of great help.
