After misconfiguring xdm I get into trouble. After a reboot, it starts X and
then fails, restarts X, fails, endlessly. Wouldn't a more fault tolerant
behaviour be to try "x" amount of times and then go back to a console login? I
had to cold boot back into the install cd and remove xdm from the startup.
Since I wasn't able to umount my partitions I consider this a bad thing.
Upstream problem ... will look into a local fix later on
still an issue?
