Subject: [Caml-list] lablgtk question: catching server shutdown

I have a lablgtk question:

Is there a canonical way to register a function that will be
called when the connection to the X server is lost?

I looked at the gtk sources (version 1.2.9) and there they
register the function gdk_x_io_error with XSetIOErrorHandler. And
gdk_x_io_error prints 

  Gdk-ERROR **: X connection to :0.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).

and calls exit. So it looks like there is no way to register a
callback for this event. Am I right?

How do others do "cleaning up" when the X server dies?
