i have the same problem in woody. don't know where the bug is
yet. nobody responded to my mail. i upgraded another system
to woody a few days earlier and it works fine. the only workaround
i found is to install kdm, and login using failsafe, then
launch your windowmanager from the xterm that pops up.

if you find a solution lemme know. hopefully it gets uploaded to
woody as im not gonna go near sid.
