Update: I now feel more and more confident this is an issue with Xcode Server. I disabled it again several days ago, and haven't had the problem again since. It's quite disappointing because I was primarily interested in the upgrade to Mavericks because of the ability to run a continuous build integration server, and now it appears that I won't be able to do so after all.

I too am having the same issue and only since I upgraded to Mavericks Server.
I find this issue happens if I try and screen share when no on is 'logged on' on the physical server.
- attempt screen share from laptop on network to server
- screen share hangs
- then unable to physically log in on server (rejects correct password)
- server becomes unresponsive / grey screen
- need to do hard reboot
My work around has been
- before commencing any screen share session to physically log on to the server
- disable automatic log out / sleep on the server
- am then able to share the screen while ever a user remains logged in on server

I am also experiencing this issue. Is there any light on the subject. Really dislike restarting the server everytime i wish to use the GUI.
Whats the offical word on this from apple?

For me, the problem was definitely connected to my having been running the XCode service on the server. I have not had the problem recur at all ever since I gave up and disabled that service six weeks ago. If you are not running this service, then your issue may not be the same thing that I observed, although I suppose it is possible that different things are triggering some common underlying misbehavior in Mavericks.

Any updates on this. I have been having a simular problem. I have a mini server and usally connect via Apple remote desktop. Sometimes when I connect from the outside world ARD stops and I get reconnecting then goes off line. When I physically get to the server I find the finder crashed and need to do a hard reboot. Oddley enought services like FTP and transmission still work when the finder is crashed.

No further updates from me, I'm afraid. I basically have given up on running Xcode Server in order to have a stable server in other respects. I haven't had the problem recur since I shut that service down.

You have probably seen, but there is an update for OS X Server - Xcode
- Fixes an issue that could cause Xcode server bots to hand and logout the active user.
^^ Seems to be the problem we are experiencing.
I am just installing it now, let hope it solves this.

Apple's docs for OS X Server 3.03 (the latest released version) don't mention any such fix, nor do the previous updates. Can you include an URL where I can see this documented?

Oh! I didn't see the Xcode Update for OS X Server ... just the Server update itself. My Software Update service isn't working properly, so I've been downloading updates manually. I guess I should see if I can find a manual download of that one.
Update: argh! Looks like it is not available as a manual download (in spite of what the following page says), and it still doesn't show up as an automatic download on my server. So I remain out of luck, it seems. Discouraging.
