I haven't had this happen, but think uniq writing to xorg.log.new then mv
xorg.log.new xorg.log might help.  As a test, try wc -l xorg.log
uniq xorg.log
wc -l xorg.log >>logtest.txt
then compare the line counts in xorgtest.txt.  If the second is far
smaller than the first, you might use grep to get a count of that error
message in the modified xorg.log file and see if it comes back as 1.  If
so, then uniq worked.
