Description

It seems that doing 'startx' (with icewm-session or exec icewm-session in
.xinitrc) and then switching back to another terminal (Ctrl+Alt+F1) causes a
short deadlock and then reboot (cpu reset?).

Seems to be reproducible relatively easily on my ThinkPad T60, but no way of
getting a dump or anything

I've started to get same situation recently. I use latest X.org and nv driver
from pkgsrc. I have a kernel dump and will show it a bit later.
