Why, is xboard broken too? I suspect the problem with this combination
was in gnuchess rather than in xboard (just a -1 instead of a 0 somewhere
which was causing segfaulting :-( ).
gnuchessx still needs xboard (in fact, the gnuchess package Recommends:
xboard). Ideally I'd take xboard over myself, but obviously if I
couldn't use it myself I wouldn't be doing it justice ...
Hope this helps,
