This bug affects my multiseat system with Karmic. I am using just gdm
and due to the latest gdm doesn't support multiseat I had to downgrade
to gdm 2.20. When my X is starting, there are some error messages in the
xorg.log which do not affect any functionality as far as I can say

The failsage-X, particulary the failsafeXInit script detects these
messages it attempts to start the failsafe X even though the original X
session is working just fine. Then I get problem that the failsafe X
runs into conflict with the original X session and I get message

There already appears to be an X server running on display :0.....

Since I cannot figure out how to get rid of the error messages in my
xorg log I have to disable failsafe X as described in comment #32.
