So far having just 1 would not have been so smart.  Ditto for .xinitrc

dpkg-reconfigure kdm now done (on reboot I see no improvment)  I
logged in as different user so .xinitrc should not have been a factor.

It was a gnome gui login.  However gdm3 was taken out of service some
time back with rcconf
