Note, I said "8 bit X terminal (NCD HMX)". This is a *real mccoy" X terminal.
It looks like the very recent commit to our xsrc:
( cvs rdiff -r184.108.40.206 -r1.2 xsrc/xfree/xc/programs/Xserver/render/miindex.c)
would only fix problems with XFree86 X servers, and X terminals don't
run that; they run their own X server.
