	When I start 2 X servers via xdm; e.g. with:

:0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X :0 vt08
:1 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X :1 vt07

	in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xdm/Xservers, one starts up, but the
	other does not until I switch out of the first one's VT.  If I
	wait too long, eventually the first X server's screen will go
	black, and the second one simply won't start up at all.

        Start xdm with 2 local server lines.
