I have the Xorg x window system on a freebsd box, and it has been working for a while. One time i remotely (through ssh) rebooted the computer while apparently the x window system was up. After the reboot i get an error when using startx, which says, "xf86EnableIO: Failed to open /dev/io for extended I/O

X connection to :0:0. broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).
xauth: (argv):1:1: bad display name "freebsd.local:0 [that computers host.domain] in "remove" command. the logfiles in an attachment. I tried rebuilding the kernel, making sure device io was in there, but that didn't work. any help appreciated.
