Bug#2360: xdm cannot find a free VT

Package: xbase
Version: 3.1.2-7

kernel 1.3.64
libc 5.2.8
xserver-s3 3.1.2-3

I don't think gpm has anything to do with this -- I don't use gpm.

I reinstalled kernel 1.2.13 and x11 from the 0.93 distribution and had
the same problem.

xdm dies on start up and sends the below message to /var/log/xdm-errors.
Here's what happens with startx:

mycroft# startx
