Bug#247766: Question about X-Resources

sure, I can quote the X(7) manpage for you:
       A  resource  database  never  contains  more than one entry for a given
       ResourceName.  If a resource file contains multiple lines with the same
       ResourceName, the last line in the file is used.


(PS: Re-sending, had issues with some mails.)
