Now I reply the experiment on some unpatched sources, and here is a sure way
to reproduce the "bug" (if it'sa bug)

1. breakpoint in Fx_create_frame
2. run emacs and block X-windows.
3. from a console kill gdb
4. when I return in X, emacs is running , and gdb that started it is dead.

If somebody can explain me in detail what happens when X blocks, please
explain me.
