Perhaps this is the message you saw:

:1 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X vt8 -bpp 16 :1.0
:0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X vt7

This starts up 2 xdms, one at 16bpp and the other at 256 colors. The vt7
and vt8 are important -- without them, the 2 xdm's fight with each other
when they are starting up and do weird things to my video card.
