	Given the error, I made two changes to my xorg.conf for my laptop that seem 
to have fixed/helped the problem. I added the following options to increase 
the gart size and to switch to EXA accel instead of XAA and the last 
logout/login worked great. The options were:

  Option       "GARTSize" "256"
  Option       "AccelMethod" "EXA"
#  Option       "XAANoOffScreenPixmaps" "true"

	I also commented the XAANoOffScreenPixmaps option. Time will tell if we are 
fixed or if I just got lucky ;-)
