 I normally don't start xdm on this machine when testing -current (at
 least not automatically with a known buggy situation), but I gave it a
 Although the output of 'ps -ax' indicated that all was running, the
 operations performed by "Xsetup_0" (set root window color and launch
 'xconsole') were not manifested on the display.  (The framebuffer console

 virtual terminal when acceleration is enabled.  Attempting to get 'xdm'
 to restart the server by pressing <ctrl-C> three times did not appear

 function at all--whether with or without acceleration--even with
 Section "ServerFlags"
   Option "DontZap" "False"
 defined in "xorg.conf"
 When acceleration is disabled, 'xdm' works and one may freely switch
 virtual terminals with Ctrl-Alt-Fn.  Ctrl-Alt-Backspace does not work.
