I have problems starting an xterm with -C as non root. That means,
I cannot see console output while running X. It does not seem to be a
permissions problem (?).

You or your xterm need to be root to hijack the console.

I can stand that, but my xterms do not create entrys in utmp or wtmp
(I don't know which one it is supposed to use). That means that when I
run X noone can 'talk' me. Is this a thing easy to fix?
When logging in over the net I get a normal pseudo tty. Everything works
fine then...

The new X bins on regensburg work great for me including showing my
xterms in `w' output.
