That's strange, but it doesn't mean you secretly have an XFree86 server.  I
imagine some header file defining that string got included.  I know those
Xsun* servers aren't from XFree86, though, because the original code base
predates the XFree86 organization, and because XFree86 3.x doesn't actually
ship those servers in the state we do.  We have some massive patches that
get us the servers we actually ship.

I believe they are.  My Ultra has only an ATI Rage Pro, however, so I'm
stuck until Marc La France gets the support finished.

That's really odd.  Are you sure?  Is the display "picture framed", set in
the upper-left-hand corner with large areas of nothing on the right and
bottom edges?
