ServerCmd wrong path in Debian Etch /etc/kde3/kdm/kdmrc

This my be related to my previous thread ; "who reports no user logged in /var/run/utmp when using kdm (Etch)"

When doing investigation for the thread mentionned above, a log file shoed that X couldn't be started properly because the executable "X" was not found.

It turned out that /etc/kde3/kdm/kdmrc was having the following line;
ServerCmd=/usr/bin/X -br
but there was no such thing as /usr/bin/X. The path file that seemed to be good was /usr/bin/X11/X. Using this path seemed to have solved the problem. The changed line is now;

ServerCmd=/usr/bin/X11/X -br

The system is using Xorg, KDE 3.5, Linux 2.6.15

Is there anyone else who experience this path problem? Is this a bug that should be reported?
