Turning off Render and Composite was one of the first things I tried - 
but no go, X still segfaults.

As for the second, here are the options I used, straight from host.def:
-O2 -march=pentium4 -fno-strict-aliasing -fno-strength-reduce 

I wouldn't think these would cause an over-optimization problem, unless 
(maybe) the -march=pentium4?  Has that been known to cause a problem 
with x.org?

I find it truly bizarre that I get none of these problems in anything 
except GTK+. :)
