Description Konrad Karl 2008-06-11 16:18:08 UTC
I had to manually mkdir -m 1777 /tmp/.X11-unix on a headless machine. 
(no X11 has ever been run there after installation)

On a normal desktop machine this directory will already exist. 

The symptoms are just a black window after authentication, then
a few seconds 'M' logo and then the windows disappears.
