I get this too with the 2005_04 dist tarball -err dont know the answer
but look forward to a good reply. I seem to remember possibly getting
it with root too and installed another term mrxvt. I think this maybe
a red herring though.
I generally use the X server for configuring only and then web interfa
ce with it to use. So I barely notice the problem.
If you need to launch a gui as non-root on it. Login as another user i
n command line and launch the package - does this work.

you havent committed yourself too heavily with packages an hour or so
reinstalling (having stored any finely honed conf files) may be quick
er than many many hours fixing broken packages.
Of course someone may know better.
I like synaptic mainly since it shows what's there easily.
