OK, I give up.

Can anyone explain to me why xdm now takes a full 60 seconds to load and
kick in?

I'm flummoxed.
It doesn't appear to be a memory-swapping problem -- more of a
security-permissions related thing, as no-one but root can now run
startx; and last week I was getting error messages about suspicious
ownership of /tmp/.X11-unix.  (No longer reproducible.)

I don't know enough about X to sort this one out -- can anyone help?
