There was obviously a small misunderstanding with my last mail. You
should shut down X and then try

/etc/init.d/xdm restart

from the console. Hopefully you will get an error message which tells us
what is going wrong. You should also have a look at .xsession-errors in
your user's home directory after you run this command.

Another thing to check is the status of xdm and all the packages it
depends on. You can do this with

apt-cache --installed depends xdm | awk '/Depends/{print $2}' | dpkg -l xdm $(cat)
