Hi, i've been trying to get my awesome3 configuration edited but i always seem to write bad lines in my rc.lua that make awesome not run, so i need to kill X and restart it. this used to work fine but now when I try to restart X it just goes to a blank screen and i have to reboot. I'm assuming it's a kernel panic because my music playing in mpd starts skipping and eventually stops playing. does anyone experience this problem or something similar with restarting X11?

edit: it's not just with awesome, but with any window manager.
