Bug#170638: Create /tmp/.X11-unix as soon as possible

Package: xserver-common
Version: 4.2.1-3

Hi Branden,

If there is no display manager installed, then it is possible
that a Xvnc session is started before the lokal XWindow server.
In this case Xvnc creates /tmp/.X11-unix with the wrong
permissions, and XFree86 will refuse to start. I had exactly
this problem a few minutes ago.

I would suggest to create /tmp/.X11-unix at boot time by one
of the startup scripts.
