I upgraded just to XFree 4.2 and everything seems to work fine
except for one thing: the following line in /etc/X11/XF86Config
freezes the whole PC for 10-15 sec after startx.

	FontPath     "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TrueType/"

Commenting out that line makes everything work just fine (without
TrueType fonts of course). Any ideas what's wrong?
