System: NetBSD 6.0_BETA2 NetBSD 6.0_BETA2 (GENERIC) 
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386
After leaving a core2duo box with integrated graphics running and compiling 
pkgsrc packages all night, I attempted to start X11. I had already started it 
once when the machine first 
booted and it worked fine. Then I came back about 12 hours later and restarted 
X11. The framebuffer output was corrupted with blinking boxes colors, followed 
by a reboot about 10 seconds 
later (I assume the delay was for the crash dump to be written). I have core 
dumps and what not to aid in the diagnosis.
Restart X11 multiple times on a core2 box with i915 graphics. Eventually, the 
kernel will panic and dump core. 

The only workaround I'm aware of is to reboot and start X11 immediately after 
the system boots. Then don't cycle X11 afterwards.
