No offense, but you didn't happen to switch back to the VT from where
you launched X11 and interrupted that process in order to enter the
xterm command, did you?
IOW: Is the X11 server still running on another VT when you tried this?
ps aux | grep Xorg
Otherwise: Did you run both commands as the same user?
The number behind the colon btw. does not refer to the VT.
