What video card does the box have? I ask because some report with using
an Intel 865G mentioned a similar problem.
I was looking for a signal 11 problem and was using an 865G video card.
I had a problem with xscreensavers and did not try to change from
ctl-alt-F1 back to ctl-alt-F7 until the next day. Both my screensavers
were working fine, no new updates were applied since noticing the signal
11 exit. I did run system-config-display --reconfig and got a new
xorg.conf which showed neither the xscreensaver error 11 or putting me
back to the user screen.
In short, here is an open bug report. It does not happen to me after
s-c-display was ran. Te video card is one that I have a system running
with, which now does not exhibit any errors.
"But officer, I was only trying to gain enough speed so I could coast
to the nearest gas station."
