.. as long as I have this line in
/etc/kde3/kdm/kdmrc :

ServerCmd=/usr/bin/Xorg -br

As soon as I have that line in the file above:
ServerCmd=/usr/bin/X -br
I risk a complete crash, without the chance to shutdown the system via
SSH from a 2nd machine: 

In one instance the machine was simply switched off, after trying to
start KDM (with 'ServerCmd=/usr/bin/X -br'), and on reboot date was
set to 1904, plus the login greeter on the console said it was 2004
(yes, 2004, IIRC).

So: no chance for the time coming to start /usr/bin/X on that
system. :)

BTW: Is it necessary to reset PRAM/NVRAM after such a crash where the
time was reset to 1904? Or is it enough to simply run something like
ntpdate to set the time?
