I didn't know that, but it sounds plausible that this could change
something, regarding to http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/libxau6 :

"This package provides the main interface to the X11 authorisation

client-side and server-side."

Perhaps somebody can enlighten us, how the authorisation is handled
without this library.


Signature microblogging with important stuff that is interesting for

connected the cables, I'll take a walk. I'm uncertain, if I should use
19" or software reverb. Any recommendations?
