Thanks for the suggestion, but no further ahead.  The Xwin screen just opens
with a blank grey background and the X mouse pointer, but nothing else.  No
window manager, no nothing.  If I leave it open long enough, it times itself
out and restarts.  It does display a msg in the log window though: "XDM: too
many retransmission, declaring session dead".  Not sure where to start
looking into that though.

Thanks for some insight!
