Bug#1690: XDM protection fault on X config error

Package: x11/xbase
Version: 3.1.2-4

Problem Description:

   If the X server has a problem starting, xdm dies with a general
   protection 0000.  (Sounds like Microsoft windows doesn't it?)
   I can supply more info to the maintainer if needed.

Expected behavior:

   XDM should exit with a non-zero status and pass the diagnostics
   from the X server to the console or print the name of the log file
   the diagnostics were written to.

Procedure to reproduce:

   Change the VertRefresh to 2--50 in the X config file.  This will
   introduce a syntax error that causes the X server to fail.

Thank you,
