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.
