    Which userland did you build X against?
 I think I built X against 5.1_RC2 as of about eight months ago --
 either that or 5.0_STABLE as of about a year ago.  (pkg_info tells me
 that the kernel I was using was NetBSD 5.1_RC2, but I think I upgraded
 the kernel first and waited a long time to upgrade the userland.)
    Since you can ssh in, could you ktrace the X server an see where it
 I ktraced everything (a little tricky because the Xorg executable is
 setuid), and I don't see anything particularly out of the ordinary in
 the ktrace during the second or two after the one that xclock freezes
 at.  There is an out-of-order entry here (starred), presumably because
 Xorg and xclock executables are running on different cores:

   1241      1 xclock   1297699912.019042214 CALL  read(3,0xbb683044,0x1000)
   1241      1 xclock   1297699913.017320137 CALL  writev(3,0xbfbfeb60,3)
   1241      1 xclock   1297699913.017341223 RET   writev 4096/0x1000

   1070      1 Xorg     1297699913.017350811 RET   select 1
 (1297699912 is the second that xclock stops at.)  However, I have no
 reason to suspect that this is indicative of a problem.  I don't see
 any ioctls or mmaps or anything like that nearby -- just a bunch of
 gettimeofday, clock_gettime, setitimer, select, poll, read/v, and
