Are you using the xdm or linked against the libcrypt as I explained
on cygwin-xfree URL?  The xfree86 3.3.5 with my security patches for
forces to have a SecurityPolicy, unless you turn it off in *.cf
files during compilation.

Well, at least it is good that SecurityPolicy enforcement worked

That I would do once I have sources from everyone, binries and
get tested by 100s of users at cygwin-xfree.  After that I will
try to get them merged in xfree86 source tree so users can compile
the code on their own... and we do not branch of xfree86 projects.
