Serious X problem, cannot start xterm.

I have no idea what is happening, IIRC I updated recently the package
X-startup-scripts, however I use startxwin.sh and there no changes at
all (why was the package updated?), all other X11 related package are
current as before.
Now when running the script I get this output when xterm should start:
$ _X11TransSocketOpenCOTSClient: Unable to open socket for tcp
_X11TransOpen: transport open failed for tcp/127.0.0.1:0
xterm Xt error: Can't open display: 127.0.0.1:0.0
Welcome to the XWin X Server
This is on my notebook with XP installed. Also later after XWin strtup
is finished (including the window manager twm) I cannot start xterm,
getting the same error.
Probably the same reason causes the issue I have with ssh here:
$ ssh sourceware.org
ssh: sourceware.org: no address associated with name
