        Funny, I worry about it a lot when it happens to me. :) Especially
when I'm working from home and I have to spend an extra 10-15 minutes
tunnelling through proxies, etc. to get back to work after every panic.
For those users who are affected, knowing to disable xconsole to enhance
their stability will be valuable.

        Of course, if someone were to actually FIX the problem...
