Interesting. I'm not sure this is causing the problem that we're experiencing. 
I'm using the standard template for xorg.conf as generated by dpkg. In 
particular, X doesn't hang when we perform a specific action.

I suppose we ought to try it though anyway. I'm curious as to what difference 
it would make and why there would be font paths there listed when they aren't
