Upgrade SAP DB 7.3 to 7.4 - missing x_start, x_stop

I have upgraded for SAP DB 7.3 to SAP DB 7.4.3.17, using rpm
installation on United Linux 1.0.

After the upgrade i am missing the programs x_start and x_stop. This
causes the existing SAP Web Application Server 6.10 TestDrive
installation not to work anymore. The scripts startsap (calling startdb)
and stopsap (calling stopdb) do not function. startsap throws an error:
"ERR 1641 XSERVER XSERVER is already running!
/usr/sap/WAS/SYS/exe/run/startdb: Terminating with error code 2."

I wanted to test if this upgrade works with SAP WAS 6.10. OK, it does
not. But i did not expect such an error.

Any idea for a workaround?
