Hmm, you'd think so.

You may need to start the X server with "startx".

Also, you might consider putting:

Section "ServerFlags"
	Option		"NoTrapSignals"

into your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4, outside the "debconf area".

See XF86Config-4(5) for more information.

Note that if the server crashes while "NoTrapSignals" is set, you may
lose your console; you may need to ssh in and "chvt 1" or something like
that to recover it.
