Re: Strange sshd behaviour

Problem solved!

I noticed the following message when trying to start an xterm:

        Warning: Cannot convert string "never" to type Int

It took some investigation, but I finally figured out that this was a result of the last line in /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/app-defaults/XTerm

        *pointerMode: never

According to the man page for xterm, this resource is supposed to have a value of 0, 1, or 2. Since the value 0 corresponds to never, I simply changed the above line to

        *pointerMode: 0

and now everything works correctly!

I'm not sure what changed to suddenly make xterm complain about this, and I'm also not sure why it makes things hang.
