hi branden,

if you read the bug report carefully, you'll see that
I complain about not being able to login from *anywhere*
including gdm. 

I'm working on it now, and it seems I can't start X
as a normal user from console. And also I can't start it
from neither xdm, wings or gdm

Additional info: with the default xdm (apt-get install xdm)
I read in the xdm log something like
sessreg: not found

where is this sessreg binary supposed to be found? [xutils which
doesn't exist??? :(]

**** Please Read *****

Anyway, here is what I get:

exa@borg:~$ startx

X: user not authorized to run the X server, aborting.
xinit:  unexpected signal 2


Is this normal? Users could start their X servers before
upgrading a couple of weeks ago so I presume the upgrade
corrupts something in the way. How do I fix this?

please reopen the bug
