diff give me no difference:
diff /XX/etc/dbus-1/system.d/xorg-server.conf /XM/etc/dbus-1/system.d/xorg-server.conf 

running with startx -- /XX/bin/X works
but startx -- /XM/bin/Xorg not, the same happends when startx
-- /XM/bin/Xnest:

[dbus] couldn't take over org.x.config:
org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.AccessDenied (Connection ":1.14" is not
allowed to own the service "org.x.config.display0" due to security
policies in the configuration file)
