Bug#220964: xdm: can't execute "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xdm/Xreset" because it's not on board

Package: xdm
Version: 4.2.1-12.1
Severity: important

I found a simple reproducible way to crash one's X session.
# apt-get install multimon #a vastly undocumented program
$ multimon
then click the button to close the window created.
[As what else does one do when there is no way to find out
how to use the program.]
Poof, even icewm is gone; one is back at the login prompt.
$ tail /var/log/xdm.log.1
