If application is able to crash a session, there's something
else going on than just application crashes.
Craig, if the whole session goes down, you might have a video
driver problem that kills your X server. Check you X session log
Also, do you have enough memory for what you're trying to do?
(At least earlier Xubuntu versions haven't been particularly
robust against OOMs, one can e.g. lose desktop elements.)
