This item is more complicated than I can deal with right now.  There seems
to be some instability induced by attempting to start X.  The following
sequence of events describes the situation:

	login as sbowman
	ps works
	su works
	startx fails
	su now fails ("Killed")
	ps now fails ("Killed")

and now many other things seems to be failing, like ping.  ls is one
thing that still works.  Logging out and back in again seems to reset
the situation, a reboot isn't required.

The output of startx is:
	_X11TransSocketUNIXConnect: Can't connect: errno = 1073741826
which repeats until interrupted.

I just upgraded to gnumach 1.2-6 and this behaviour still occurs.
Is anyone else seeing this kind of instability?
