"ddxSigGiveUp: Closing log" killing my session

I occassionally hit some keystroke that causes my X session to terminate,
gracelessly.  I see in /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old the following last line:

   ddxSigGiveUp: Closing log

Presumably that has something to do with it.  Other than that, I haven't
a clue what happened.  I've tried to reproduce the keystroke, but I can't.
It generally happens in an intense debugging session when I have lots of
windows open and I'm switching from one to the other.

One possibility is that there's a key mapped to some reset function,
but I can't find it.  Does anybody have an idea what it might be?

I should have added: If you can't remember a keystroke,
that may not be relevant.  You were simply keyboarding,
when something else happened.

Relationship to "X" or not to "X"...
TABLES: Parent p_id order info Child p_iD f_id transaction info RELATIONSHIP parent::p_id = child::f_id Scripted button creates a new child record and passes the parent::p_id to the child::f_id This works fine, and when changing views to the child layout - everything is there and in the correct places. However, the portal I have on the parent table (showing child fields) is blank - shows no lines. If I change the relationship to: parent::p_id X child::f_id the portal instantly shows all transactions regardless of the order id, not just those of the parent::p_id order...

why "::", not "."
Why does the method of modules use a dot, and the constants a double colon? e.g. Math::PI and Math.cos -- Posted via http://www.ruby-forum.com/.

"or" and "and"
Hi, I'm just getting to discover ruby, but I find it very nice programming language. I just still don't understand how the "or" and "and" in ruby... I was playing with ruby and for example made a def to print Stem and Leaf plot (for those who didn't have a statistics course or slept on it, e.g. http://cnx.org/content/m10157/latest/) Here is the Beta version of it: class Array def n ; self.size ; end def stem_and_leaf(st = 1) # if st != (2 or 5 or 10) then ; st = 1 ; end k = Hash.new(0) self.each {|x| k[x.to_f] += 1 } k = k.sort{|a, b| a[0].to_f <=&g...

"my" and "our"
Hi, while testing a program, I erroneously declared the same variable twice within a block, the first time with "my", the second time with "our": { my $fz = 'VTX_Link'; .... ( around 200 lines of code, all in the same block) our $fz = 'VTX_Linkset'; ... } So the initial contents of the $fz declared with "my" is lost, because "our" creates a lexical alias for the global $fz, thus overwriting the previous "my" declaration. It was my error, no question. But I wonder why Perl doesn't mention this - even with "use s...

"out" and "in out"
Hi i found the following explaination: In Ada, "in" parameters are similar to C++ const parameters. They are effectively read-only within the scope of the called subprogram. Ada "in out" parameters have a reliable initial value (that passed in from the calling subprogram) and may be modified within the scope of the called procedure. Ada "out" parameters have no reliable initial value, but are expected to be assigned a value within the called procedure. What does "have no reliable initial value" mean when considering the "out" parameter? By c...
