For some reason, when I run xconsole, I usually get some sort of error
to the effect "Can't open console", whether I have su'd to root, or
made xconsole setuid root.  On the other hand, if I su to root and
enter xterm -C, that always seems to work.  I don't have the sources
to xterm and xconsole at the moment, so I don't know what's different
about them.  I'm running xdm, and Xdaniver on an A2024.
