 My best recommentation would be "upgrade to the lastest available
 debs".  These debs are for testing purposes and uncovering bugs.
 Braden gets mightly pissed off (and rightly so) if he gets duplicate
 or it's-already-fixed kind of reports, which is the case now.

 Solution in the short run: chmod g+s /usr/X11R6/bin/X
