EDIT: I changed the title and edited the post, as I have since completely uninstalled Vivaldi, and the problem persists. So:

I can't seem to figure out what's causing the problem, but moving the mouse cursor across the screen boundary -- always from my right screen to the left one --- randomly causes X as a whole to crash out, dropping me back at the login screen and killing all the running applications that depend on a window.

In Xorg.0.log, I only see this:

Code:
[ 67679.537] (--) NVIDIA(GPU-0): CRT-0: disconnected
[ 67679.537] (--) NVIDIA(GPU-0): CRT-0: 400.0 MHz maximum pixel clock
[ 67679.537] (--) NVIDIA(GPU-0):

[ 67679.585] (--) NVIDIA(GPU-0): Eizo EV2455 (DFP-0): 330.0 MHz maximum pixel clock
[ 67679.585] (--) NVIDIA(GPU-0):
[ 67679.616] (--) NVIDIA(GPU-0): Eizo EV2455 (DFP-1): connected
[ 67679.616] (--) NVIDIA(GPU-0): Eizo EV2455 (DFP-1): Internal TMDS
[ 67679.616] (--) NVIDIA(GPU-0): Eizo EV2455 (DFP-1): 330.0 MHz maximum pixel clock


Any guesses what might be going on here?

Thanks for the help,

EE

btw, it should be obvious from the log message, but I'm using nvidia-drivers-390.77. My WM is fvwm-2.6.5-r2, running as two separate instances.

Also, while we're at it, here's my /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

Code:
# nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings
# nvidia-settings:  version 381.09  (portage@domo-kun)  So 23. Apr 19:54:44 CEST 2017

#Try manually adding glx
#Added for conky - needs DBE
