I am sorry I did not give the full info :(
Usually, for "development" testing, I use this method,  as long as only
"sugar" changes  are involved.

When I first  came across the issue, I followed the normal way, and
installed the "sugar-control-frame" and "sugar-control-accessibility"
packages too (dependencies of "sugar"). I installed all the three packages
without "--force" then.

However, there came to be no difference in behaviour (as long as XO-boot
was concerned). :(

Please find attached the entire "/var/log/" directory, of the
"failed-to-launch-X-server" boot on the XO-1.

Note that the names of the files are capitalized and shortened - it so
happened when I copied the "var/log/" directory onto my pen-drive, from
the shell login on the XO.

Thanks and Regards,
