By the way, on my machine, this is just:
X :0 -multiwindow

This was the same for me.

I didn't have it in the first place.

I'm on Windows 7.
Renaming /usr/lib/dri/swrast_dri.so fixed the problem for me.
I then renamed it back and ran rebase on it
with the defaults used in rebaseall. X is still starting up.
I then created rebase.lst using the commands used in rebaseall.
/usr/lib/dri/swrast_dri.so is in there.
But I have run rebaseall immediately prior to starting X
and it was still failing to start.
So it does appear to be a rebase problem,
and I have no clue why rebaseall couldn't fix it.
(It was completing successfully.)
