I did the update, and the X server starts and stop fine:

$ X -retro

X.Org X Server 1.6.0
Release Date: 2009-2-25
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0
Build Operating System: FreeBSD 8.0-CURRENT i386 

It terminates as well fine (without crash) on Alt-Ctrl-BS); tried it
three times without any crash;

but when I launch 

$ startx

which starts KDE 3.5.10, it crashes when KDE is ended via the menu in

startkde: Shutting down...
klauncher: Exiting on signal 1
kde4: not found
startkde: Running shutdown scripts...
startkde: Done.

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11.  Server aborting

Do you want to see /var/log/Xorg.0.log? or should I file a bug report?

when I use:

$ startx -- -retro

I can bring it down clean with Alt-Ctrl-BS, but as well stopping KDE via
menu let the server crash.
