killall -9 gdm

works pretty well for me.  Of course, that's not quite the 'log out' you
had in mind, but it gets X back on it's feet.

if you are on Debian (and who wouldn't be), then

/etc/init.d/gdm restart 

should do the same thing.

I fought Muhammed Ali,
I seduced Mata Hari,
I even wore a sari when I impersonated Ghandi,
and I dare any man here to call me a liar....
