Yes, if I 'startx' it works as it should, until the next time I switch 
vt's. Hhhm, let me try with a different user ... seems to be settings 
related as it doesn't happen with another user. I also renamed the 
.config dir and now it works again. I will start migrating my settings 
one file at a time and will post back.

Thank you for the quick answer.
