For anyone's interest, here are solutions to the two minor annoyances I
suffered dist-upgrade 'ing to edgy:

*(1) If you get a 

E: /var/cache/apt/archives/x11-common_1%3a7.1.1ubuntu5_i386.deb: trying to
overwrite `/usr/share/man/man5/Xsession.5.gz', which is also in package
xinit

then just do a
dpkg -i --force-overwrite
/var/cache/apt/archives/x11-common_1%3a7.1.1ubuntu5_i386.deb

*(2) xorg startup dies with 
"cant find default font fixed"
after installation.

Just do a 
aptitude install xserver-xorg

If anyone else has made notes that will help someone else along, then
why not post them here?

Cheers,
Jonathan.
