A static picture is good enough. :)

You should be able to install xserver-kdrive-glamo-dbg on the device to get 
the debug symbols. As for debugging... we would need to know for which 
command it is waiting to empty and which commands were executed before. We do 
not yet keep track of that... and maybe it is time to keep a small ringbuffer 
of the last used commands.. and flush it somewhere on a kill...
