  To restart the X server (Xsgi) once, do any one of the following
  (in increasing order of brutality):

  - killall -TERM Xsgi
  - hold down the left-Control, left-Shift, F12 and keypad slash keys
    (this is fondly known as the "Vulcan Death Grip")
  - /usr/gfx/stopgfx; /usr/gfx/startgfx
  - reboot

  To restart the X server every time someone logs out of the console,
  edit /var/X11/xdm/xdm-config, change the setting of
  "DisplayManager._0.terminateServer" from "False" to "True" and do
  'killall -HUP xdm'.
