The xorg.conf was in my initial mail on the subject. The problem with
Xorg.0.log is that it seems that the file is not written (or still
in some buffer, not on disk) when the machine hangs. I'm
thinking about nullmodem or an old line printer and redirecting
output from X, problem is that my parallel and serialports which is on
a card needing the puc driver hasn't worked since upgrading
to 8.1... Don't know if it would be possible to get the file
if I mounted /var/log from nfs.

I'll repost the xorg.conf here
