The problem is with the xlib6 package, not the xlib6g package. I assume
you have version 3.3-6 installed. It has a serious bug that wasn't there
in version 3.3-5 package. You can fix it by placing some symlinks, which
sounds ugly to me, or by downgrading xlib6 to version 3.3-5. This breaks
nothing that isn't already broken (like fvwm2 and xpmroot) and it doesn't
conflict with any other package (xlib6g conflicts with xlib6 versions
below 3.3-5). If you can't find xlib6_3.3-5.deb, try my ftp server at
cal011205.student.utwente.nl in /pub/debian/local/binary-i386 .
