#259: Xorg issues after upgrading to RC2

 Priority:  major              |   Milestone:         
Component:  XOrg Configurator  |     Version:  8.0-RC2

 After upgrading from 8-BETA to 8-RC2 (64bit) on my notebook I was stuck in
 the graphics setup program. I guess due to the update of  xorg-server the
 screen was completely mangled and I could not regonize anything. With
 8-BETA I didn't have any problems with it.
 The graphics chip is
 agp0: <Intel GM45 SVGA controller> on vgapci0

 The big problem was that I tried to kill the Xserver and configure it
 manually, but after killing the Server it just respawned, which also
 caused my working /etc/X11/xorg.conf was overwritten.
 After a lot of fiddeling I deleted /PCBSD/xorg-gui/.xsession-failed (or
 the like) and was presented a working X with the graphics setup program.

 I propose that theres an easier  way to achieve this. :)
 Maybe pressing Esc exits the program?
 BTW: Switching virtual desktops in Fluxbox with Alt+Function Key should be
 disabled for the graphics setup.
