.... The last 2 times I have pkg-upgraded, the X server (xf86-video-vesa 
for me) was upgraded. When I rebooted, I got an error trying to login 
under graphical login, resulting from a mismatch between the X server & 
various components (kbd & mouse drivers) .... When I manually reinstall 
all 3, all is well & I can graphically login (XFCE xfce-4.10_6, BTW) 
.... This is messy at best, if the graphical login barfs in the wrong 
way, I get a desktop w/ no kbd or mouse control, have to login from 
another machine & fix the problem .... *ick* .... Others have posted a 
similar problem on this list, that's how I found the sol'n (manually 
reinstall server & offending drivers) .... Could this be escalated as a 
problem that needs fixing :-) ? TIA ....
