Trouble with nvidia-370 / nvidia-375 and startx?


I've been using nvidia-370 from the graphics-drivers ppa
happily for some time with various cards and ubuntu 16.04;
I start a simple graphics environment with
   systemctl start multi-user.target
and it's happy.

But lately with either 370 or 375, I'm seeing startx just leave me with a black
screen, using a gtx 1060 card.  367 works fine.  This will probably make
it hard to use the bigger gtx 1050 cards, which I think require the
newer driver.

It's probably user error, but just in case, has anyone else had trouble
with startx and newer drivers?
