This is on FBSD 8.0-current i386 with intel 845G video chip, with
xorg-server-1.6.1,1 and xdm-1.1.8_1.
Initially the server starts fine, but after a while I cannot open any new
window, whether it is xterm, xpdf, display, firefox, etc. I get:
% xterm &
% No protocol specified
xterm Xt error: Can't open display: :0.0
 Exit 1 xterm
To fix the problem I have to logout and logon again.
What could be causing this behaviour?
