All was well after that.  Please forgive any typo on the file location, as I'm at home now without the server in front of me -- but note that the file you need to change is in /var not /etc or /opt.

Thanks, that did the trick. Just to document the correct path, the file is

I commented out the line that said


This time, the thin client rebooted properly. It is worth noting that
the above line was the only SCREEN statement that was uncommented in
the file. I don't know of any Linux distros that don't use
screens 1 - 6 as command line and screen 7 as the default X11 screen.
This is therefore probably a bug, rather than a feature.
