I am experiencing a similar problem.  On reboot kdm starts fine.  I
logout and I get a blank screen, no command line no nothing.  If I ssh
in from another computer and check the kdm.log and Xorg.0.logs  I get
the same error messages.

0: /usr/bin/X(xf86SigHandler+0x6a) [0x48402a]
1: /lib/libc.so.6 [0x7f9b91f3d100]
2: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//nvidia_drv.so [0x7f9b8fc1c780]

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11.  Server aborting

"ps uax | grep kdm" shows that kdm is still running

So the X server is dead but kdm is still running.  Now if I kill the
running kdm and then restart kdm "/usr/bin/kdm -config

Both the X server and kdm will restart just fine no problems no errors.
So the problem is some how related to the restarting of the X server on
