I tried Ctrl-Alt-Backspace in the graphical login wndow, but as with other
key Ctrl-Alt key combinations
this does not do anything ...

I there a commadn line way to restart X

I also tried fsck-ing the /var/ file system, but it chooses  NO WRITE
nothing is repaired
See the last UNREF FILE, it has the size of the huge /var/log/Xorg.0.log I
already deleted from command line (and not anymore in
an ls -la), but keeps fulling /var

It seems even to be still growing ...
