The long saga of trying to get a working git xorg continues. I can
start the git X with a simple .xinitrc that contains an xterm. However
as soon as I press a key xterm dumps core after printing the assert.

I thought it might be there was a mismatch between xterm and the newly
built libraries so I also ran the test after clearing PATH and
LD_LIBRARY_PATH in the .xinitrc. The same assertion fires (although
obviously a slightly different line).

Any ideas what could be triggering this?
