Bug#482527: xorg: login by startx broken. System unusable.

Package: xorg
Version: 1:7.3+10
Severity: critical
Justification: renders system unusable

Upon entering startx the system displays the following error:

Fatal server error:
Unrecognized option: /etc/X11/xinit/xserverrc

The file xserverrc is the unmodified one that is installed by the package. There has been a recent update to compiz (installed yesterday) and I would not be shocked to hear that that is the culprit, but do not know how to check that. I am happy to try to run any suggested work-arounds.

With best wishes,

Adam Bartley
