It is improper (or at least unanticipated) usage. The example cited does not crash X11 on GNU/Linux for me, but the following does:

wireframe(F ~ x * p, bt, groups = factor(p), shade=TRUE)

This involves some C code in lattice, which could well be the culprit. I'll clarify the documentation, but I'm not sure how easy it would be to catch the bug.
