I'll track down that logfile and check it out.  I didn't have X11 running at 
the time, since I figured it might have to upgrade some components that X11 
runs on.  It rebooted the machine, and when I scrolled up to check out all 
the startup text, everything looked in order.  Hopefully something will jump 
out in the logfile.
