Absolutely - and I didn't say "don't do that"; I just don't sympathize :-)

Well, not really. One version of Linux introduced that. Debian and its
derivatives have never used it.

Just "the way it's always been" :-)

No. With the standard login, all of those messages are popping up on tty8,
and when I use tty1-6 I don't see console messages. I'm not sure of the
mechanism going on there, because it's never mattered to me, but it's been
consistent for 2 or 3 releases, at least.

No, really, I _don't_ feel strongly that you shouldn't use startx; I feel
strongly that people shouldn't blame Ubuntu for not being able to do things
Ubuntu doesn't do. Which isn't to say that that's _quite_ what I thought
you were doing...

Nah, I just like to show my knowledge (besides which I'd just been through
the whole business of getting the b43 drivers installed, because I upgraded
my kernel and it started spitting those messages...).
