Subject says it all: one machine works and I can still access virtual
terminals with Ctrl-Alt-F*, one doesn't and is effectively X only.

Another colleague has reported the same problem in testing: he's anxious
not to mess up his laptop.

Anyone else noticed anything similar??


Not enough information for anyone to diagnose your problem.

1) What is your video card? Any third party drivers? Kernel version? Which version (testing/sid)? You said your friend uses testing. But what are you using?

2) Can you post your log messages generated when you do startx?

The related logs are stored in /var/log/Xorg.0.log
