Debian already has a nice way to fix this -- if X doesn't start it tries
a couple of times and then disables itself and offers to show you the
log or drop you to a login prompt.

I don't know if this functionality is from the X packages or from gdm
etc. but it is a much better solution than the band aid offered by

Ignorance is when you don't know anything and somebody finds it out.
