Bug#259639: xserver-xfree86: [ati] X starts a bit, then returns to console; [drm:radeon_unlock] *ERROR* Process 1389 using kernel context 0
> shot's `startx` ends up in that "immediate session exit", while

Sigh. So I've finally learned about the ~/.xsession-errors
file, and, sure enough, at the end of it was the line
** (gnome-session:13910): WARNING **: Unable to read ICE authority file: /home/shot/.ICEauthority
After chmodding ~/.ICEauthority from root:root to shot:shot everythings
works again. Sorry for taking your time and filing an "important"
bug against the wrong package; all I can say in my defense is that
~/.ICEauthority must've somehow chagned to root:root around the same
time I upgraded X to 4.3.0.dfsg.1-6.
Thanks again for your time and please close this bug.
