Still having issues, but managed to figure out how to correctly start
xfce4. It is almost usable, but slow, because of the nv fallback

I sent by mistake only the startx errors to another thread entitled
"followup to my last message". Sorry if that breaks continuity. I can
attach it to this message so as to not break the thread.

As I said before, the startkde never gets a chance to start, but at
least X is working - sort of.

I want to of course figure out what those extra errors are coming from
and how to fix it. The dist-upgrade doesn't seem to have helped this
situation - did a dist-upgrade this AM on lenny and everything was
fine, and suddenly I was trying to look at a document in openoffice
and the whole X session just hung, and I had to ctrl-alt-backspace.
After that, I can't get my display back the way it was.
