olpc-dm/Xorg segfault only if during systemd boot

The first message is a result of your problem, not a cause.

The second message is normal, verified in my test just now, therefore
not related to your problem.

To look at the systemd journal for olpc-dm ...

	systemctl status olpc-dm.service | cat

To look at olpc-dm client logs ...

	cat /tmp/olpc-dm*

Do both of these in the failed state as well as the working state to
identify the differences.
