Can't confirm that. Works fine here on a mostly similar system.

Looks like X is getting killed because of high memory usage - how much RAM does your system have?
What does dmesg say afterward?
What does /var/log/Xorg.*.log say?
Comment 2 Gene Seto 2009-02-17 05:40:54 UTC
I'm guessing this page fro this bug causes a crash too?
Comment 3 Dmitry S. Makovey 2009-02-18 05:15:22 UTC
I'm going to try opening link from comment #2 on my office machine and see if it'll crash it. However reading through bug #253062 it looks awefully like my experience. And I know I should not be running out of memory - nothing hoggs the memory that fast. it's a 1.5G machine with 2G swap. It should spend some time thrashing the swap first, no? In my experience - it's instanteneous: click-DEAD. Looks like a crash in X11 libs someplace as it crashes Xorg and everything else naturally goes with it (KDE/FF/etc.). I'll reproduce problem and see what I can gather from logs.
Comment 4 Dmitry S. Makovey 2009-02-18 15:37:47 UTC
0: /usr/bin/X(xf86SigHandler+0x85) [0x80cec63]

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11.  Server aborting

from what I gather sig11 is related to "out of boundary" access stuff:

"""Signal 11, or officially know as "segmentation fault", means that the program accessed a memory location that was not assigned. That's usually a bug in the program. So if you're writing your own program, that's the most likely cause. """

Comment 5 Dmitry S. Makovey 2009-02-18 15:41:34 UTC
feel free to mark it as a duplicate of bug #253062 - URLs there crash my X11 session in the very same fashion.
