Thanks for providing such a detailed report, this enabled me to quickly 
reproduce what I think is the issue.

This seems to be a problem with xlaunch, which needs a small update to 
work correctly with xserver 1.17.

I've just uploaded xlaunch-20150224-1, which should fix this.

I think this is actually also the cause of your 'crashes' as well. 
After about 12 minutes, xlaunch is deciding that the X server hasn't 
started successfully and is killing it.
