I don't think that was the problem I was seeing. Unless a side effect
is that you're not able to shut down the X server anymore... ;-)
With the 1.6.3 server, Ctrl+Alt+Backspace did not work, only sending a
SIGKILL to the server (by a user logged in over the network) worked, but
left the screen garbled until the system was restarted. And blindly
typing `shutdown -r now' or pressing the power button to trigger a
shutdown by powerd(8) did not work as well.
In the meantime I've extracted the old sets to make Xorg (server 1.4.2)
is usable again...
This email fills a much-needed gap in the archives.
