xinit sends SIGKILL to server too aggressively

With several recent versions of the intel driver, I've had occasional black screens while exiting X. Instead of going back to my VGA-mode console, the screen goes into DPMS mode and numlock on the keyboard stops working. It seems to happen more frequently under load, but that could be my imagination.
I've seen this problem in the following versions of the intel driver:
- Debian-packaged 2.0.0-5
- Debian-packaged 2.1.1-1
- git checkout from 2007-08-31 (7fd9a98178cdebda4213796fdc452a8a265a1197)
I'll attach a log and a config.
