I am running X on a -current machine (kernel/world of 07/2/3). startx
produces the following result:

xauth:  creating new authority file /home/leafy/.serverauth.1271

Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support
         at http://wiki.X.Org
 for help.
Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for additional

X connection to :0.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).

This happened after the latest Xorg-server update. Does anyone have
any idea how to debug this problem?
