    Why is it even possible for a webpage to interfere with my xsession?

    No crashing for me, running Hardy. Maybe the X crashing is related to Flash?

    In my experience, X likes to crash when there's a graphics card driver-related problem. I really doubt this is some kind of security issue.

    Out of curiousity: what graphics card/driver are you guys using? I have an nVidia card and I'm using the "restricted" driver Hardy suggested to me.

    This is the same bug that causes pink or randomly colored shadows in Compiz for some people. It's also unique to the Nvidia 8 series cards. It has to do with an incorrect symlink in the nvidia-glx-new package.
