I'm tired of X craping it's pants. After a day or so, if I try to exit 
and restart X
X locks up, screen garbles and the following is in Xorg.0.log shows:
WW) intel(0): drmDropMaster failed: Unknown error: -1
(II) intel(0): [drm] removed 1 reserved context for kernel
(II) intel(0): [drm] unmapping 8192 bytes of SAREA 0xc510a000 at 0x28851000
(II) intel(0): [drm] Closed DRM master.

While the console shows

If I switch to the vesa driver, will I get stuck with stupid resolution, 
like 1024x768, and what will I be missing out on (aside from the crashes)?

Opinions please?

Over the years I've come to regard you as people I've met.
I may be schizophrenic, but at least I have each other, and when I am 
alone I am together.
