Ahh, ok, that helps me make sense of it. Its not something specific to
7.1-BETA1, probably something which broke in the Xorg 7.4 update then.
I'll e-mail you some instructions in the morning when I'm at my syste.
After a failure like that, it does save a log file, which you may be able
to send me, so we can figure out what the actual failure is.
