Description Ivan Zakharyaschev 2008-03-31 22:48:27 MSD

xfs can crash: https://bugzilla.altlinux.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14896 ,
https://bugzilla.altlinux.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10360 . After that, its clients
are left without fonts and can't work well further until the administrator
restarts xfs.

So, I suggest to restart xfs automatically if it crashes. (Probably, not too
many times/not too often, as it is done for xdm.)

This will make administrator's and users' life brighter.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. crash xfs (e.g., by starting Eterm)
Actual Results:  
no fonts available to all users after that.

Expected Results:  
xfs is restarted and fonts are again available to all users.

Ivan, you might be inspired to write a config snippet for monit -- I'll be glad
to include that ;-)

шлите патчи

хотя нет. для того что бы приложения не теряли шрифты после креша/рестарта xfs 
иксы к нему должны подключаться по tcp, а не через сокет
