Thanks for the info,

I am using Stretch and  preliminary stable builds, I normally update
while using my workstation, not necessarily best practices, spoiled by

So I tried it to see...oopps, performed exactly as you posted.

This is not my expected behavior, I noticed that Debian was doing a
security update on some xorg, xorg-server stuff..Nics suggestion fixed
the issue, having the xserver stop while working is, hmmm..stressful.

Suggest others update from a non X environment this time.
