Xorg isn't FreeBSD.  Seeing as Linux runs pretty much exactly the same
Xorg code as FreeBSD, then yes, Linux *does* have this problem.  In
fact the whole hal and dbus concept came from Linux.  It's also the
case that the Xorg developers recognise they screwed up: we're just
waiting to see what they come up with as their next idea.
