Ditto here, but 264 logs all between 2012-06-14 18:50:54 and
2012-06-14 18:52:08. IIRC, after an upgrade of some xorg related
package, the display froze and I couldn't do anything. I suspect
that gdm3 tried to restart X, which almost immediately crashed,
and tried again and again, until I rebooted the machine. This
problem has already occurred in the past. I think this was that:
