It's almost surely a bug in xorg.  I have reinstalled 
        xorg-x11-6.8.2-37.FC4.45.x86_64.rpm
        (and all the associated rpms)
replacing 
        xorg-x11-6.8.2-37.FC4.49.2.x86_64.rpm
        (and all its rpms),
which is broken, and haven't had any trouble since.

I have submitted a bug report to freedesktop bugzilla; 
it is number 4611.

BTW: How can I keep yum from "upgrading" X windows?


Thank you all for your assistance - jon
