I stand corrected. It's not a freeze but panic -- the machine reboots
itself. No core though:
Sep 10 17:02:01 host savecore: reboot after panic: page fault
Sep 10 17:02:01 host savecore: no dump, not enough free space on device (55888 available, need 359726)
Sep 10 17:02:01 host savecore: unsaved dumps found but not saved
Don't understand why it's not enough memory:
host% swapinfo -h

I used to build ports at tinderbox and then unstall packages.
I can't find any changes for xorg ports options -- seems that
tinderbox uses the defaults.
I'm not sure if all (needed?) ports are up-to-date.

May be because the glx extension is loading by default?:
(II) "glx" will be loaded by default.
