What controls X?

Hi list, 

after some update long time ago, kdm is starting on console 9 instead od 
console 7 (which is deafult).

I could still not find out, where X is controlled at. I found this process:

root     10358  7.8  1.9 146300 41052 tty10    Rs+  19:13  14:11 /usr/bin/X :0 
vt10 -br -nolisten tcp -auth /var/run/xauth/A:0-DzJNF

Examing the system, I found in /etc/X11/xinit/xserverrc

exec /usr/bin/X -nolisten tcp "$@"

where "$@" I suppose is the console-number.

But where does it get from? In kdmrc the terminal is configured, that it should 
use the next free console (ServerVTs=-7).File /etc/inittab is identically like 
on my other computers, where X is still running on console 7.

Just on my amd64-system it is started wrong. Although it is not a big problem 
at all, I am very interested, how things work together, as I found no 
misconfigured configuration yet. 

It would be nice, if someone might point me, which configs are involved, and 
maybe which steps I should check, to get X back to console 7.

(besides: Of course, it is working, if I change 	


but as this setting is workingh on all my other systems, I want to leave it as 
set by default and find out, why the same settings differ only on this special 

Hope, someone knwos better, as I try to solve this now since months.

Best regards
