Xubuntu 11.10 came with lightdm manager, I suppose that explains the 
absence of that file.  still, I'd be looking into *why* the system tries 
to start another X server because most of the errors relate to instances 
of this and that already running, though you'd probably still get the 
warning re buttons.
