Default Re: Spawning new session leads to crash

Here they are. The sequence was
1) login as userA (vt7)
2) switch session to userB
This left me in vt7, logged in as B. The session for A disappeared.
The KDE session menu showed vt8 as unused (but present)

My more usual experience is that after 2) I am logged in to vt8 as user B. After awhile (usually just a few seconds) the display flips back to vt7, which is now empty.

I'm not sure the X logs show much. However, kdm.log includes this:

(==) Log file: "/var/log/Xorg.1.log", Time: Sat Jun 28 21:43:47 2008
(==) Using config file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf"
(II) Module "ddc" already built-in
(EE) Failed to load module "type1" (module does not exist, 0)
(II) Module "ramdac" already built-in

Backtrace:

7: /usr/bin/X(FontFileCompleteXLFD+0x219) [0x8073a51]

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11. Server aborting

The failure to load type1 is typical; the traceback is not. Here are the more typical last entries in kdm.log:

(II) Module "ddc" already built-in
(EE) Failed to load module "type1" (module does not exist, 0)
