I guess you missed the part where I said: tag 97671 + help upstream Because 1) it is an upstream problem (the X Window System, being very old, has some pretty stale ideas about filesystem layout) and 2) I'd appreciate help with this bug since I have more important things to do like get 4.3.0 into experimental (and ultimately unstable). So, volunteers are cordially invited to take a crack at the Imake modifications that would be necessary to fix this. In the Release Manager's opinion, sarge should not ship with this awful, awful, horrible bug (hence "release-critical"). You never know what back-channel favors might accrue if you do something to make both me *and* the Release Manager happy. :) (TINC) -- G.
