Install and start native xorg, with a kernel compiled without
COMPAT_BSDPTY. .xsession-errors will show

xterm: Error 32, errno 2: No such file or directory
Reason: get_pty: not enough ptys

This wasn't the case with native xfree86.
See above.
The work around is trivial, just add COMPAT_BSDPTY (which is in GENERIC
anyway). I don't know what the real fix is, and am just noting the
change in behaviour.
