Thankyou ahoffman... that works, now I have got some scripts that start gpm and kill it when I startx and restart it when I finish x. that was the problem, a very wierd one at that.

Anyway thanks for your help, it solved my problem...

Please post a blank answer or something so I can give you the points....

That's the way it works :-)

BTW, you would have gotten this information from various READMEs (XFre86) too.
