The server caught a fatal signal 11 there, caught it and logs it.
I'm not sure if 0xbfbfdfdc realy is the signal trampoline or if gdb just
borked decoding the trapframe, but this does not matter.

Here, in #8 lies the problem. Look at what place the signal happens and why.
You might try running the whole X server (from another machine via network)
in gdb. This way gdb catches the signal before xf86SigHandler is invoked.
