I will.
Not tonight but probably tomorrow.

Is there something specifically you recommend I do to break it? (if not
- I'll just specify the wrong video driver - that ought to do it)

I'm curious to see what your talking about - I've had that happen on Red
Hat and it handled it gracefully - and they start the display manager
from inittab. (in RH it was because after modifying my XFree86 file - I
copied the wrong backup - the one I had back with my VooDoo3 which I no
longer have - to the config file).
