Description:
I'm running Arch Linux under VMWare (Workstation 9.0).

After today's update (xorg-server 1.13.0-4) X crashes randomly. It looks like the latest package does not play well with vmware mouse driver. I've downgraded to xorg-server-1.13.0-3-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz and the problem went away.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
xorg-server 1.13.0-4

* config and/or log files etc.
Here is an excerpt from Xorg.0.log:
