Bug#765726: Peeling the Onion

The reason it appeared I did not restart X after loading the updated
module is the Xorg.1.log was a stale console from an older unrelated
XDMCP client session.

I cannot get the system to create a new Xorg.*.log when X is invoked via gdm3.
I have no idea why that is - If I invoke X directly, the log file gets created.

To move forward, I have purged gdm3 and installed lightdm as a replacement.
I still have the same startup issues this way, and the log does appear
in /var/log
I am enclosing it in the following entry.

Thanks for your patience on this.
