Subject:   X video problems on second load

Howdy all.  I've finally got FreeBSD and X installed on my cheesy Celeron
with ATI 3DRage video.  I managed to get my sound working as well as the
wheeled mouse.  Not too shabby for a MS Windows developer.

The problem that I'm having now is the display flickers/toggles between
normal and black on the SECOND load of X.  I first noticed this when using

(from /etc/ttys)
ttyv8 "/usr/local/bin/kdm"    xterm on secure

I first noticed this problem while trying to enable wheeled mouse support
and TrueType fonts in XFree 3.3.6/KDE  I'm now using XFree 4.2/KDE 2.2.2 and
I'm still seeing this problem.

I guess that my biggest problem is diagnosing this problem.  I don't know
where to look.  What logs/configuration files will help me/others identify
the issue?
