Thanks for your ideas.  I guess the dpkg-reconfigure worked to change this
file, though.

jdecarlo at calumny:/etc/X11$ cat default-display-manager

Maybe someone can find something interesting in these files:

jdecarlo at calumny:/etc/X11$ cat xinit/xserverrc

# $Id: xserverrc 189 2005-06-11 00:04:27Z branden $

exec /usr/bin/X11/X -nolisten tcp
jdecarlo at calumny:/etc/X11$ cat xinit/xinitrc
# $Xorg: xinitrc.cpp,v 1.3 2000/08/17 19:54:30 cpqbld Exp $

# /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc
# global xinitrc file, used by all X sessions started by xinit (startx)

# invoke global X session script
. /etc/X11/Xsession
jdecarlo at calumny:/etc/X11$
