Nope, not in mine. But it works fantastic - thank you very much!

The startx command with the options you gave caused X11 to launch in
the current terminal (tty1). Just only exiting the same X11 session
resulted in one of the worst system failures I had (grey screen and no
reaction on keys) - the system was not anymore runable.

Now thats really nice! I thought more of a command which saves all
text which I suppose must be in a sort of 'bash_buffer' without
triggering the start - but this command is very helpful indeed!
