Same here, AccelX 2.1 and Matrox Millenium for the record...

Yup, same here, even though "fixed" exists in the alias file all nice
and well as far as I can tell...

Yeah, I'd like to hear some, too.
I'm pretty baffled as to how it happened and pretty pissed that it did.
Using MH in the absence of exmh is a truly painfull experience. ^_^;;

I wonder why the XFree maintainer doesn't do (eventually remote)
compatibility checks against AccelX and other add-on components, I'm sure
there a large number of users here who would be glad to help. And 
equally glad to not see the symlink killed every time a new version of
XFree gets install...
