in /etc/kde3/kdm/Xservers, add an -ac swith to the X command:

:0 local@tty1 /etc/X11/X -ac -dpi 75 -nolisten tcp vt7

but don't ask me why!

If you just need XF 4.2 to support new hardware, just grap the Xxserv.tgz and 
Xmods.tgz binaries from xfree86.org, install them over your debian install 
(in /usr/X11R6), and put a few packages in hold state into dselect:

and you will be able to live for a few weeks until XF4.2 arrives in sid...
