	System      : OpenBSD 3.5
	Architecture: OpenBSD.i386
	Machine     : i386
	I first encountered this problem when I started a kernel compile
	in an xterm, started xlock, and left.  When I came back, X had

	Fatal server error:
	Caught signal 11.  Server aborting

	I found that if I started xlock, hit a key and then clicked on
	the "thumbnail" of the screensaver to lock the screen again
	and repeated this a few times to cycle through the various modes,
	it would soon crash the server again.  In particular this happened
	quickly when I ran xlock -mode molecule although I doubt it is
	a problem with this particular mode.

	The system is a Pentium II running OpenBSD 3.5 GENERIC.
