Without looking into this much further because I'm a little tired, I would wonder what running SAX or SAX2 would do to help the problem. Just a thought.

It's the name of the program. Just type "sax" or "sax2".
I think it stands for SuSE something Xwindow or something...

Ok, I just thought about how ignorant I was with the last post. I'm not familiar with Debian, so what I'm saying is probably irrelevant. Sorry.

Look for the xserver log file for more (E) errors.
