I've noticed that more than 2000 or so polygons loaded into QGIS will cause X windows to crash.

I have not tested this lately. It is not a QGIS bug. It is a bug in the Xserver. I have generated a backtrace and filed a bug with xorg. This (QGIS) bug can be closed because it does not occur in the QGIS code. The backtrace indicates that the bug is in the polygon filling algorithm used in X. As best I can tell that code was written at MIT in 1982!
