Default XIO: fatal IO error 104

Hi,

X doesn't start on our new Dell Precision 670 workstations. The workstation runs Fedora Core 4 with latest updates. This is specific to this hardware, we have lots of other Dell workstations and they don't exhibit this problem.

# startx
[...]
X Window System Version 6.8.2
Release Date: 9 February 2005
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0, Release 6.8.2
Build Operating System: Linux 2.6.9-22.ELsmp i686 [ELF]
[...]
(==) Log file: "/var/log/Xorg.0.log", Time: Wed Nov 2 13:55:18 2005
(==) Using config file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf"
XIO: fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0"
after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

I've seen other threads refering to this 104 error, but none with actual solutions:

Is this a known issue? Is there a generic solution to this problem, or is it hardware-dependent?
