Looks like a problem opening the X display. The login goes through,
an attempt is made to seize the display, but something goes wrong
and dtlogin (or whatever you are using) aborts. I've come
across this in HPUX when running in a networked environment
and the nameserver doesn't confirm the hostname. Make sure that
your hostname is the same as that declared in your local DNS.
Just to be safe, call your host some name with 8 characters or less.
And try again.
