Following your lead several days later, while installing xfce4 and  
gdm, zhone-session, frameworkd and several other FSO components were  
uninstalled. What are you using for a phone application? Also, with  
the referenced error below, how do you respond to the screen prompt  
from GDM about X already running? I can't get a keyboard to pop up at  
that point and there isn't an okay button to select with a stylus.  
Coincidentally, I also can't get in via USB networking at that point.
