I received a number of replies all telling me to check the permissions
on /tmp. The correct permissions are 1777.

I'm grateful to all who responded for not pointing out my utter
stupidity. Rest assured that I AM kicking myself.

> Binding Unix socket: Address already in use
> Fatal server error:
> Cannot establish unix listening socket
> xinit: unexpected signal 2
> There is no other X server running. So what's up? Where should I
> be looking for the solution?
