2.4.9-bk and X on 6500, not so good

I have a stock 6500/300, on which I just compiled and installed the
ppc.bitkeeper linuxppc_2_4 (2.4.9) kernel. In console mode (RL3) it
works just fine.

But whenever I launch X (Gnome for example, or a plain window
manager), about 70% of the time it breaks into the mon debugger
before X has fully launched.

Problem is, there is no keyboard response at this point, and I can't
even restart with the 3-fingered approach (no response). Only thing
that works is power down, and restart.

Any suggestions? To create a backtrace appears impossible...
