Running xserver

I now have the Xserver "running" in that clients connect to it and 
appear to attempt to display images.

I submitted a patch for the biggest problem I had, which is that it 
always found /etc/X11/xorg.conf instead of the wayland specialized one. 
On Scott Moreau's suggestion, I did this by modifying the xorg source 
rather than changing weston to find the file and pass it as a -config 

Now what happens is xserver crashes as soon as I try any client (I tried 
xev mostly). It then is relaunched, and crashes again. It does this 
continuously until I kill weston (killing the X client does not stop it).
