This doesn't work on 2013-12-20-wheezy-raspbian:

FRAMEBUFFER=/dev/fb1 startx

Solution:
Disable option in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-fbturbo.conf

#        Option          "fbdev" "/dev/fb0"

It might be a better solution to change the value instead of disabling it.
This way raspi-config menu choice: Enable Boot to Desktop/Scratch -> Desktop, will work.
It also removes the need for the FRAMEBUFFER environment variable: startx

        Option          "fbdev" "/dev/fb1"

Details: Which framebuffer does X windows use?

Isn't /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-fbturbo.confonly a template file and the real one lives under /etc/X11/
