X11 makes blakck screen


if I type startx, I just get a big black screen, no cursor no nothing.
I cannot change consoles, but the machine is not frozen, it works through the network and will shut down gently when the power-down button is pressed.

X spits this out:

narsil$ startx
xauth:  file /home/multix/.serverauth.538 does not exist

Top tells me that X is actually running and consuming all cpu:
  235 multix    28    0    22M 8140K RUN       46:18 99.02% 99.02% Xorg

The machine is a ThinkPad 600 running NetBSD 6.1. It has a Pentium-class processor.

cpu0 at mainbus0: Intel 586-class, 232MHz, id 0x581
acpi0 at mainbus0: Intel ACPICA 20110623
acpi0: X/RSDT: OemId <IBM   ,TP600   ,00000001>, AslId <    ,00000000>

Any hints or ideas? Some configuration htat has to be done? I did not create any xorg.conf.

Thank you,
