the previous version of XFree86 did not have support for the SiS 530/630
chipset.  So i only have experience with this version of the x system

after further debugging and testing (lots of stress testing) i am beginning
to think it has something to do with the KDE 1.1.2 that i am running.
navigator (still bsdi) under stress or navigator in combination with a
screen saver seems to make the machine want to boot or lock up completely.

i will probably wrap up my testing in the next day or so and move on.  if
anyone cares about what i find out, or would like me to pursue it to a
definite cause, e-mail me personally.  otherwise, i will find a work around
and move on.
