actually...my system is like that too
My system was installed hamm via ftp during freeze...so...
if the bug goes back that far then it is unfixed as of then

And I have not run Xadmin either (tho personally I don't see
the problem with it modifing the files...it is an admin tool
afterall...noone complains about vi being able to edit the
files...but I didn't get into that argument when I saw it...
not interesed in it now :) )
