I have a strange problem on one of my FreeBSD 7.0-STABLE boxes.

The machine is a FreeBSD 7.0-STABLE/AMD64 box, most recently built-world.
Whenever I logout from a local X11 session (using Xorg, most recent, and Windowmaker, also most recent, all X stuff recently rebuilt), Xorg eats up 100% CPU time and I never get back to the login box offered by xdm (xdm is driven by /etc/ttys as recommended). Instead I see a weird unresponsive screen with blinking, weird coloured block-graphics and letters, in most cases the same pattern, but this changes. Logging in from another box and killing Xorg gives back the expected login box from xdm.

I have no glue what's going on here. My graphics board is a nVidia driven GF8600GTS and it worked well a couple of weeks ago. I rebuild the whole X stuff incl. all the dependencies because I thought it could have something to do with miscompiled or outdated ports - but thta isn't obviously the fact.

Does anyone see this on his box also?


There have been reports of 100% CPU with some graphics drivers, specifically nvidia's with Xorg. I would check that you have the correct and latest driver for your specific video chip.
