Yes, display manager restarted, also tried kdm instead of gdm but the
problem remains.

There is a more fundamental problem I guess. From the commandline, as
root; I cannot startup graphical clients:

Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

the DISPLAY variable is set to ':0.0'... 

Any input appreciated,
