I also noticed that i lost the ability to remotely server xwindows

I noticed that the /etc/X11/xinit$ "xinitrc" file had changed
and that the nolisten command was no longer present.
(which should be of concern since it now means all xsevers will serve
automatically, when they should be turned off by default)

I wonder if this has anythign to do with it.
