[I must have overlooked your mail... sorry but I didn't ignore you]

The new X works fine on my SE/30.  I am using it right now as I'm writing
this.  It doesn't take seconds to echo keystrokes... which makes me
wonder:  Did you set your color depth *1-bit*?  I'm not sure if X works
with color depth more than 1-bit at all, but if it does, it must be...

BTW, I got a used Micron XCEED SE/30 (?) and a 15" monitor, and X
works in both screens! (with XCEED being :0.0 and internal video being
:0.1)  Mmm...
