No, but should they be, and why would they suddenly change?
Especially since X is XFree 3.1.2G beta (which I installed
over the top of the binary from the 3.1.2 package).
Or could this be due to some sort of filesystem error,
like when I accidentally switched the machine off
without shutting down a few days back? :-) Ooops.
