x server breakage?

sources cvsupped 2 hours ago. make buildworld && make buildkernel && make
installkernel went fine, as did mergemaster -p and mergemaster.
whn xdm tries to start, console message is /dev/tty8 repeating too fast.
sleeping, retry in 30 seconds. The message repeats over and over.
After disabling xdm in .etc.ttys, startx fails with "unable to open /dev/io."
(there is no io in /dev)
When I boot with /boot/kernel.old/kernel (July 31st build) both xdm and the
manual "startx" work fine.
Install is i386, Dell Optiplex PIII, xserver is x.org
