This is normal.  But I have crashed XFree 4.0 far too often and easily
for my tastes and I think better stay away from it for now.

Ah!  6.2 finally has arrived to France.  One of the pleasant surprises
is that it detects (modern) monitors so we no longer need to
fiddle with clock timings.

No longer needed since I have persuaded another person to do it.  :-)

But nevertheless thank you.

There is a thing however if you are interested: converting the
install-sendmail front end from perl-tk to perl-gtk (unless Donovan
Rebecchi who wrote it supercedes you).  Since this perl-gtk is needed
by other applications install-sendmail to it would allow us to get rid
of the 8 megs perl-tk who has no other use.
