    doing this would freeze up your computer...


    If you type "X", switch back to the tty where X server was started from (most likely [CTRL-F1]), press [CTRL-Z], and switch back to the tty which the X server is on (most likely [CTRL-F7]), your computer would freeze up. Is this a bug?

    Whenever I squirt water on my CPU to cool it down, the computer locks up and smells funny. Is that a bug?

    Probably because you have X windows start by inittab, instead of running startx from a command line. If you do the latter, the console will be "occupied" by X windows (don't know if you could run it in the background by running "startx &". Since user222 seems like an adventurous guy, maybe we can get him to try it). Consequently, if you shutdown the console "in" which X windows is running, you will pull the rug from under X.
