Thanks for the tip, I wasn't aware that the Xorg version in ports was 
already ahead of the XFree86 port. I lurked a bit on the lists for tips on
upgrading (enough material to read) and the update a couple of days ago
went smooth. It looks like stability improved but it's difficult to say
at this stage as I also had an X crash with the new X.org distribution 
(again while using OpenOffice). But if it crashes only weekly instead of 
daily that's of course an improvement.

Karel.
