I don't know which upgrade did it, bit I think this wasn't the case earlier. In my "/opt/kde/share/config/kdm/Xservers"-file I have added the "-nolisten tcp"-option to the X-startup-commands. However, when I do a "netstat -lp" it still says X is listening on a tcp-port (twice .. which seems strange):
tcp 0 0 *:6000 *:* LISTEN -
tcp 0 0 *:6000 *:* LISTEN
Anyway an idea why it does this (and how to fix it)?
I added -nolisten tcp into my defaultserverargs in whatever script that was... seems like its doesn't work... I'm going to make a ~/.xserverrc and try that
The script probably was startx, but the .xserverrc file in your home dir works fine.
X -nolisten tcp
Maybe AL should provide a more secure sitewide default configuration.

I believe the initial poster didn't put the option right.
Using KDM, I have it working with:
"ServerArgsLocal=-nolisten tcp -dpi 96" in /opt/kde/share/config/kdm/kdmrc.
Note that KDE comes with "-nolisten tcp" already set. I only had to add -dpi 96 to the config variable.

i edit /usr/X11R6/bin/startx, it works with xfce4, at least.
thanks for all the nice tips.
