With the upgrade to xorg 1.16.0 on I'm seeing different behavior.

video driver: i915.

Previously I could run "startx& exit" on machines without a login manager from a text vt after logging in. Now it doesn't work and I've seen errors.

This one happened after a failed attempt like "startx& exit" either right away or when I tried to just "startx" again:
xf86OpenConsole: Cannot open virtual console 1 (Permission denied)

This one seemed to be non-fatal:
xf86EnableIOPorts: failed to set IOPL for I/O (Operation not permitted)

What could be the problem?
This task depends upon
