Re: security update broke X
Some extra info. to help whoever may be concerned:
I did the update from inside a screen of multi-gnome terminal while
running X. It worked without any strangeness. I started the upgrade
just before going to bed. This morning it was complete. I read my
mail. Saw the post to which I'm responding. Restarted X. Flawless
performance all the way. And the xterm security concern is gone.
If others have Robert's problem, or similar, I can post details
about my system, and maybe someone can figure out what aspects of
a Woody installation trigger problems.
