Ah, so then your X setup does actually work; something must be wrong
with xdm.

If you try to run X by itself, and then in another virtual console say
"DISPLAY=:0 xdm", does that work?

(of course that's not a solution, but it will help to debug)

The amount of time between slipping on the peel and landing on the
pavement is precisely one bananosecond
