I had a crash on Mar 6, two on Mar 8, and another on Mar 12.

I don't know if it incidental, but just before the first crash, I had
put (server-start) into my .emacs and used it via emacsclient in
connection with some of those crashes.  

The other change I made is that before Mar 6, I hadn't used an
up-to-date CVS emacs very intensively for some weeks, but on that day,
and the days after I updated and used it quite intensively...

So I don't know exactly when the crashes started ...  but it may be
something done before Mar 1.

True, but if you go back another week, there are some quite fundamental
changes in the way X errors are handled -- which I think is more likely
to be the cause of these problems...

I will do that.
