Rainbow 22 regression bug in X startup under Qemu

X fails to start under Qemu, starting around Rainbow 22.

The fix is to copy /etc/X11/qemu-xorg.conf to /etc/X11/xorg.conf and restart, but this step hasn't been necessary for the last weeks worth of rainbow builds, so it's not clear whether requiring special xorg.conf files under Qemu is design intent or not...

I had just fixed it earlier today.

But it broke the build in a way that would require a small fix in pilgrim, to which I have no commit access.

Bernie, is this still broken? Can you attach the patch?

I think I've fixed qemu/vmware in the latest version of olpc-utils.

Can anyone confirm it?

I tested it myself... looks fine.

Sugar has a related bug that makes it die if there's no sound. The workaround is to enable sound in qemu for now.
