Thanks. In the meantime I had discovered that it was "sessreg"
causing the problem, but sessreg wasn't associated with any of
my installed packages (it must have come from my previous
binary install of 4.4, which I thought I had
deleted). Reinstalling XFree86-4-Server-snap did not help, so
I poked around a little more, installed XFree86-4-clients
(which I had previously got along without), and now I seem to
be all set.

I hope this doesn't create problems in the future, but since for now
my package database is happy and X works, so I guess it's OK.

Thank you for your help.
