Thats the problem: I CANT log in remotely, as the network locks out as well.
That was the first test i did.
Now i have been "smart" to open the ssh session BEFORE i start X.
I have the 9.1 on runlevel 3 for starters, and open two ssh terminals.
One doung a top -i and the other for a prompt to kill or whatever needed.
But still, as the system grinds (see other post regarding y2base) i loose 
connection via ssh. It just drops.
So i cant use that to kill anything. :(
