testers wanted for xfree86 4.1.0-14pre15v3

<crass bribe>The sooner I can put this release to bed, the sooner I can work on
4.2.0.</crass bribe>

Experimental versions of the X packages are available at my repository.

Please test these so that 4.1.0-15 can be a solid release, worthy of the
woody release.  Please direct feedback to the debian-x list.

# add this line to your /etc/apt/sources.list to use this repository
deb http://people.debian.org/~branden/ woody/$(ARCH)/

# add this line to your /etc/apt/sources.list to use this source repository
deb-src http://people.debian.org/~branden/ woody/source/

At this point I have added all the functionality I plan to add.  The
only things I will add to the -15 prereleases at this point are:
	1) security fixes
	2) debconf template translations
	3) corrections to the fixes in this release

This fix should resolve the problems recently reported with the s390

[s390 guys, I don't actually read your list, so please follow-up to

 xfree86 (4.1.0-14pre15v3) unstable; urgency=high
   * patch #000_stolen_from_HEAD:
     - Alan Hourihane's fix for calculation of DPI when Xinerama is in use
       (Closes: #127749)
     - SECURITY: Don't abuse the priviledges of the X server to access shared
       memory segements in MIT-SHM (Roberto Zunino, Matthieu Herrb).
     - fix erroneous variable reference that could cause Xft to be disabled
       when LD_BIND_NOW is used, causing stack poisoning (Keith Packard, Kevin
       Puetz) (Thanks, Kevin!) (Closes: #137145)
   * patch #064: fix in fbdev driver; fbdev wasn't telling shadow layer when
     there was no framebuffer available (i.e., when switched away to a
     different VT) (patch courtesy of Keith Packard, Roland Schulz, and Michel
   * patch #500: Gerhard Tonn's patches to enable X server code on the s390
     architecture; however, the XFree86 X server itself is still not built.
     Also affected:
     + debian/MANIFEST.s390
     + debian/control
     + debian/rules
     + debian/scripts/vars.s390
     + debian/xbase-clients.conffiles.s390
     + debian/xbase-clients.files.s390
     + debian/xlibs-dev.files.s390
   * debian/control:
     - xlibs Conflicts: xcontrib (<< 4.0) and xsm (<< 4.0); this should help
       apt figure out some upgrade paths
     - xvfb Suggests: xbase-clients (Closes: #134947)
     - x-window-system-core Depends: ${F:XWSC-Special-Depends} instead of
       "xserver-xfree86" (see below, should make this package installable on
   * debian/local/Xsession.d/50xfree86-common_determine-startup: correct and
     quote a variable reference to prevent unintended reads from standard input
     (thanks, Robert Bihlmeyer) (Closes: #131291)
   * debian/local/Xwrapper.config: correct range of permitted nice values
   * debian/local/dexconf: give users more information in comment block of
     written X server configuration files (Closes: #136438)
   * debian/local/dexlet/main.py:
     - update BusID validation code to reject hexadecimal digits, and accept
       3-digit bus numbers (thanks, Richard Hirst)
     - update BusID validation code to accept XFree86's special "-1" value,
       which appears to indicate an ISA bus
     - store selection_method template from configlet (thanks, Richard Hirst)
   * debian/local/xvfb-run{,.1}: xvfb-run checks for existence of xauth, and
     exits with an error message if it cannot be found (thanks, David Schleef)
   * debian/rules: define special substvar F:XWSC-Special-Depends to take care
     of the fact that s390 doesn't build xserver-xfree86, and still keep the
     x-window-system-core metapackage useful
   * debian/scripts/vars.*: define XWSC_SPECIAL_DEPENDS for all architectures
     except s390
   * debian/shlibs.local: resynced with xlibmesa3.shlibs (see below)
   * debian/xbase-clients.preinst.in: remove obsolete xconsole alternative if
     it exists (Closes: #131251)
   * debian/{xdm,xserver-common,xserver-xfree86}.templates.ca: added Catalan
     translations (thanks, Ivan Vilata i Balaguer) (Closes: #133791)
   * debian/xdm.templates.fr: added French translation (thanks, Jean-Christophe
   * debian/xdm.templates.it: added Italian translation (thanks, Matteo
     Dell'Amico) (Closes: #135915)
   * debian/xlibmesa3.shlibs: "libgl1" to "xlibmesa3 | libgl1" so that packages
     using this library don't get a pure virtual dependency in their control
     data (Closes: #135443)
   * debian/xserver-common.preinst.in: if /etc/X11/Xserver exists, echo a note
     it being obsolete, and move it (thanks, Joey Hess)
   * debian/xserver-common.templates.dk: added Danish translation (thanks,
     Dennis Haney) (Closes: #131611)
   * debian/xserver-common.templates.fr: updated French translation (thanks,
     Jean-Christophe Dubacq)
   * debian/xserver-common.templates.it: added Italian translation (thanks,
     Matteo Dell'Amico) (Closes: #135908)
   * debian/xserver-common.templates.ja: updated Japanese translation (thanks,
     Tomohiro KUBOTA) (Closes: #137861)
   * debian/xserver-xfree86.config:
     - big-time changes, mostly to support DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive
     - documented proper syntax for the shell functions used
     - changed syntax of exiting validate_* functions so that question priority
       is supplied as an argument, and updated all function invocations to
       correspond to this
     - new functions; validate_bus_id_db_input(),
       validate_monitor_frequency_db_input(), and auto_answer(); use these
       new validate_* functions when getting bus ID's and monitor data, instead
       of inlining the code
     - collect information about installed video cards in one pass at the
       beginning of the script, and set NSERVERS, NDRIVERS, NCARDS, and MULTIHEAD
     - MULTIHEAD is now set if NCARDS is greater than one, not NSERVERS
     - updated and added some debugging messages
     - migrated debconf questions that *MUST* have answers, and do not have
       "safe" defaults, to use auto_answer() instead, note that if you do not
       pre-answer these questions and configure this package with the
       noninteractive frontend, the X server is NOT guaranteed to be configured
       in a sane way
     - change all autodetect questions to use auto_answer() function, set to
       false if the question cannot be asked, and stop setting the seen flag to
       false before asking the question (Closes: #137869)
     - specify MAY_BE_NULL variable on the same line as the call to
       validate_string_db_input, always
     - handle case where mdetect returns no output at all; also, break out of
       autodetection loop after one iteration if the autodetection question is
       not being aksed
     - don't do string compares on $?
   * debian/xserver-xfree86.templates.fr: updated French translation (thanks,
     Jean-Christophe Dubacq)
   * debian/xserver-xfree86.templates.it: added Italian translation (thanks,
     Matteo Dell'Amico) (Closes: #135966)
   * debian/xserver-xfree86.templates.ja: updated Japanese translation (thanks,
     Tomohiro KUBOTA)
