	Well, on a stock 3000T xv, as snarfed from uni-regensburg, locks
	the server up solid. This is on a current -current. I also
	can't use xinit on either of 3 3000's running a current -current
	as the resulting server, both X11R5 and X11R6 servers, can't
	access the mouse or keyboard. Has anybody else seen this?
	Do the Xmono and Xdaniver servers need a special kernel setup
	when run under current?

	Overall the Xdaniver server is WONDERFUL tho! I would ask that
	the fputc(stderr,7); be added to the bell routine tho so the
	server can at least beep. I did this with the Xmono server
	under X11R5.

	Also, is the source available for the Xdaniver server? I like to
	be able to rebuild things from scratch...
