Okay! Okay! Okay!  :)  I goofed.  Woody can ALSO run 3.3.6!  

I guess I'm going from memory and from the numerous postings here on Debian 
User that when upgrading to Woody it is not uncommon to experience problems 
with the X configuration and a lot of it has to do with XF 4.0X either 
attempting to install itself or otherwise confusing the issue with regards to 
how X operates.

IIRC, when many users upgrade to Woody, their X configuration is jacked up and
they have to take matters into their own hands to straighten it back out.
