  I am still experiencing problems, I will give more details later
(notably three 'free(): invalid pointer ' at 0x10028188, 0x100281b0
and 0x100281c0 when calling dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86-dbg).

  With respect to CPU frequency scaling, I am not using this (800 MHz
all the time) and if I were using it, it would be against my will (how
to check it is not enabled by some package?).

  Notice that the lock-ups do not freeze the system, only the X server
(well, it is quite a bit annoying) that takes 99 % of CPU and is
impossible to kill.  The only possibility to regain control is to
remotely log onto the machine and to ask for a reboot.

Thanks for your help,
Frédéric Lehobey

Bug#283764: X clients will not start. Fix found.

Package: xfree86-common
Version: 4.3.0.dfsg.1.-1

When I type "startx" at the console, x starts and quits.  But if I type
"startx" at a dumb terminal on a serial port, x starts OK and goes to
the icewm (ice window manager which I have installed).  So why can I
start X from a dumb terminal but not from the console? 

It took me some time to determine why.  The error is in the file
/etc/X11/Xsession.  The run_parts() function has
	for F in $(ls $1); do
it should be:
	for F in $(command ls $1); do

This is because I have in my /etc/profile:

if [ $TERM = linux -o $TERM = xterm ]; then
    if [ $TERM = linux ]; then
       eval `dircolors`;
       ls () { command ls --color $* ; }
    fi
else     
    ls () { command ls -F $* ; }
    .....

So when I use a dumb terminal and $TERM = my-dumb-terminal (or whatever)
then ls() is defined differently.  But at the console, ls() is made
to support colors and the run_parts() can't seem to cope with the
control codes which are embedded in the file names to create colors.
One word "command" fixes it.
