interesting part:
when the x server previously runs on tty7, it runs after crash at tty8
and vice versa.
at the "crashed tty" is displayed the following (64bit):

*** glibc detected *** free(): invalid next size (normal):
0x0000000001094d50 *** glibc detected *** double free or corruption
(!prev) 0x00000000010661e0 ***

This smells suspiciously like what crashed was your window manager rather
than the X server itself.  Trying to create a window much larger than the
physical screen is a good way to make this happen...
