I've been trying.  But, when you get one random client disconnecting
every hour or so, it's *really* hard to get a useful capture.

Emacs has died once or twice, printing a one-line "lost connection to X
server" message.

One interesting data point: I've dropped back to a 2.6.22 kernel and
have yet to see the problem.  It's only been a couple of hours of work
time, so it's too soon to say, but there might be some sort of
unix-domain socket weirdness in 2.6.23-rc.  If that is true, it would
sure be nice to get a handle on it before the final comes out.
