This didn't happen for some time, but today I managed to restart X in the middle of my work! I was pissed. This should happen. Only key combination I know of for restarting X is CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE. I use klipper in gnome as clipboard manager. I wanted to see a list of clipboard stack, and tried to press CTRL-ALT-V which pops up klipper window from tray. I'm not sure which keys I pressed but some key near V. Maybe C or F. But still when I not try CTRL-ALT-C or F my desktop stays working, X doesn't reset. Can somebody explain this to me? Thank you. --
CTRL-H is the backspace keysequence in vi & bash shell. I wonder if somehow you managed to send a CTRL-ALT-<CTRL-H> key sequence to the terminal. I wasn't able to do it no matter what I seemd to try. Maybe it's possible somehow. And the H is relatively close to the V. Jacques B.
