The freeze is only in the display, neither X nor wscons can restore
a sane display mode. There is a small chance that vbetool from pkgsrc
can do that.

That's what kills your application.
Like other OOM-killers, ours need to take a guess on which process
to kill. Apparently it prefers the application instead of the X server.

Your X server probably needs memory as well, and both, application
and X are together too large. There may be also side-effects from using
shared memory transport or maybe DRI (DRI is only for the local display).

The interesting part is: how large is the X server before it crashes.
