confusing error message if there is no disk space available in user's home directory
Submitted by Artur Moczulski

Steps to reproduce:
- Make sure there is no free disk space in current user's home directory.
- Run startx
- Wait a couple of minutes until black screen disappears.
The message reads:
No protocol specified.. No protocol specified.. ... xinit: unable to connect to X server: Resource temporarily unavailable xinit: server error
- startx automatically exits.
Problem: The message does not indicate any problems with user's home directory whatsoever, hence it's very confusing. This may cause a lot of frustration and confusion when first installing X.
