[opensuse] 11.0 - Why do I have 2 Xorgs running?

Listmates,

This may be normal, but why do I have 2 Xorg processes running? Here is
the
ps -elf output concerning both:

4 S root 2763 2670 22 80 0 - 80162 select 20:25 tty7 00:34:39
/usr/bin/Xorg -br -nolisten tcp :0 vt7 -auth
/var/lib/xdm/authdir/authfiles/A:0-aJtnUi

1 S root 2963 2763 0 80 0 - 80162 KAS_Ev 20:25 tty7 00:00:00
/usr/bin/Xorg -br -nolisten tcp :0 vt7 -auth
/var/lib/xdm/authdir/authfiles/A:0-aJtnUi

More of a curiosity really as I have confirmed my other boxes do.
However,
one questions begets another, "Why do some boxes have Xorg running and others
X?" Here is the same output from another 11.0 box:

2684 tty7 Ss+ 51:10 /usr/bin/X -br :0 vt7 -auth
/var/lib/xdm/authdir/authfiles/A:0-4Ld3DH
2813 tty7 S+ 0:00 /usr/bin/X -br :0 vt7 -auth
/var/lib/xdm/authdir/authfiles/A:0-4Ld3DH
