The Xsun* servers in Debian toss up a splash screen which is stored in that
directory.  XBanner1.ras is a monochrome Sun raster file.

I don't know why this operation is bombing.

I may have an unstripped server binary around that you can use; then when
it cores a reasonable backtrace can be done.

However, I'm pretty sure that development on that line of X server is dead;
efforts have moved over to Sun hardware support via the XFree86 4.x server.

But if you want the unstripped binary, I can make it available to you.
