There's some initialization issue.  By accident, it worked fine for a
session, but when I quit and 'xdm' was resetting the Xserver, it stopped
working again.  Switching to a text console and back to the X display
made it start working again.

I seem to recall having to do this sort of thing before, but it's been
a while since I last played with -current X on this machine.

I don't recall having 8.0_RC2 misbehave but if it does the same action
will likely get it working again.
