olvwm locks up ...


On a brand new install, Debian 2.0, using install disks from 29 Mar98.
Machine has an S3 Trio 64/V+ ... I'm using the SVGA xserver, olvwm WM,
and xdm.

If any user tries to login via xdm, you get as far as the desktop, with
two windows open (an xterm, and the virtual desktop window).  There's an
xconsole icon at the bottom.

However, after that things are screwed pretty good.  No mouse pointer,
no keyboard ... ctrl-bkspc doesn't work, ctrl-alt-f[1-6] doesn't work
... even numlock doesn't work!  It seems to be locked up solid.

So ... what do I do now?  I don't know how to troubleshoot this if I
can't get back to a VC.

If I've left out info, please ask.  I'm fairly new to X ... I'm fairly
confident in my install abilities as far as the rest of the system.
