I have played with it more to find a good way to reproduce it. Well, kind  
of. Download crash.txt, then view in Firefox (maybe works for Mozilla  
too). Be sure to save anything before you play with crash.txt, because it  
will kill X.


To reproduce crash in Firefox:

1) Run Firefox (keep in mind, everything option is default)
2) Open crash.txt
3) Go to menu, 'View -> Character Encoding -> More Encodings -> Unicode'  
and select any in there. After you selected, then do it again but select  
different Unicode like more than three times. Sometime it would crash X in  
two changes.

As for Opera, it's a lot easy. All I have to do is open crash.txt and X  
got crashed. My Opera option is heavy tweaked on fonts options by use  
Microsoft fonts mostly, bold and other options. I have no idea if it will  
crash with default option or without have non-Microsoft fonts installed.
