After doing my homework, it seems that it happened only some years
ago. I have some very old systems, that I have been upgrading again
and again, without reconstructing from scratch; the old systems are
carrying xorg-server along. On the newer machines that I installed,
there is only X clients, no X servers.

So the problem was only an old problem, I apologize for disturbing.

Best regards,
