After upgrading xorg-server from 1.11.3 to 1.11.4 it runs havoc.

First, I have re-emerged everything installed from x11-drivers including
ati-drivers. Furthermore I have re-emerged xdm (see below) and I have run
revdep-rebuild, lafilefixer and I have checked/removed dangling symlinks.

I'm using IceWM and xdm (or slim) as login managers.
This constellation has been working just fine up to 1.11.3

Now, if I disable any login manager and use  'startx' everything works fine as ever.
But, if I enable either xdm or slim, I get a blank screen or a screen full of colored stripes just after I have entered my password.
Then my system is totally frozen, only the SysRq sequence lets me reboot my system. I tried to switch qtgraphicssystem from 'raster' to 'native' but that didn't make any change.

I have attached Xorg.0.log and xdm.log.

Looks like the xdm initialised X server is trying to use dbus whereas the startx initialised X server does not.

xdm does print this somewhat confusing message:
xdm error (pid 15489): Dbus error: Unable to open session: Failed to execute program /usr/libexec/dbus-daemon-launch-helper: Success

but it might as well be X11 or ati-drivers that causes this issue, for all I know.

I am not sure xorg-server is to blame - wouldn't you have upgraded lots of other packages along with it?

Also, what is in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf? Please attach that to this bug report as a file.

Yes, I did install some more packages at the same time, only these might be relevant:

x11-libs/libxcb  emerged  3 days before
x11-libs/cairo x11-libs/gtk+:2  x11-libs/qt-meta  emerged the day before

x11-base/xorg-server x11-libs/vte `qlist -IC x11-drivers/`  yesterday

So, the ati-drivers are NOT new. Furthermore, any problems with these show up immediately. Since 'startx' works just fine and xdm comes up, X11 seems to be functioning up to the point where xdm passes control to the WM of the user.

Is there any simple method of debugging?

Using a login manager is important for security at our university.
Starting X11 by using 'startx' one can switch to a text console via <ALT> F2
although the X11-Screen (VT7) is locked.

Thanks for your help,

Reopen if this is still a problem.
