 WARNING: bash 1.13(beta) and XFree86 don't mix
[The bash refered to here is an alpha version of bash from cwru. If you
have a "real" bash (i.e. pre-1.13) then you should be fine. --mdw]

The recently released beta version of bash changed the signal handling
again. Therefore running startx won't work with bash-1.13 installed as
/bin/sh.

If you get

xinit:  Unknown error (errno 0):  Server error.
xinit:  Unknown error (errno 0):  unexpected signal 1

from starting XFree86, please check you are not using bash 1.13(beta).
