Absolutely right. This laptop's xdm worked before the update, so I doubted
your suggestion.

What happened is that the update replaced my /etc/X11/xdm/
in which I had carefully set vt08 as the terminal to use. The update
changed it to vt05, which was inconsistent with my /etc/ttys.

Editing /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers back to vt08 fixed things.

mystery solved!
