 files anywhere.)
-Miscellaneous cosmetic fixes.
-    2231, 2232, 2252
-Update Spanish debconf template translations (thanks, Javier
-Fernández-Sanguino Peña).  (Closes: #298538)
-    2207
-Fix CAN-2005-0605: libxpm4's scan.c file may allow attackers to execute
-arbitrary code via a negative bitmap_unit value that leads to a buffer
-overflow.  (Closes: #299272)
-    2217
-Update FAQ entry "What is the story with XFree86's license?" to clarify
-wording and add a bit of future-proofing, per request from Daniel Stone.
-    2218
-Update FAQ to remove hyperlinks to the ViewCVS installation on
-necrotic.deadbeast.net, which no longer exists, and replace hyperlinks to
-snapshots of the xfree86 repository with hyperlinks to the Apache-served
-xfree86 repository itself.
-    2219
-Update FAQ entry "How can I help debug the XFree86 X server?" to include
-instructions on attaching GDB to a running X server process, and advice on
-how to recover the console while the X server is wedged.
-    2220, 2221
-Update FAQ entry "What is the story with XFree86 3.x?" to remove
-CAN-2004-0914 as a potential security threat -- XFree86 3.x did not ship
-the Xpm library, which that advisory covered.
-    2222
-In lxterm, redirect the standard error output of "locale charmap" to
-/dev/null so that we don't attempt to parse it.  Thanks to Denis Barbier
-for pointing this out.
-    2225
-Update xfonts-100dpi-transcoded and xfonts-75dpi-transcoded's postinst and
-postrm scripts to stop invoking update-fonts-alias; these packages ship no
-font aliases, and can provoke warnings from that command if their
-non-transcoded counterpart packages are not installed.  Thanks to Gregory
-Colpart for catching this.  (Closes: #287221)
-    2226, 2254
-Stop using non-POSIX "local" keyword in shell-lib.sh.
-    2233
-Fix xdm's prerm script to remove /etc/X11/default-display-manager if the
-corresponding debconf question has disappeared (meaning that the last package
-which provided that shared template is being removed); this enables a clean
-purge of the /etc/X11 directory (among the xfree86 packages, at least).
-    2234
-Add dependencies on xfree86-common to every package that ships files in
-/usr/X11R6 and doesn't already have such a dependency; this ensures that
-the files located there are always locatable via the
-/usr/{bin,include,lib}/X11 symbolic links provided by xfree86-common.
-    2235
-Enhance xdm's logrotate configuration per Andrew Suffield.
-+ Rotate log file weekly.
-+ Keep logs around for one year.
-+ Compress log files.
-+ Delay compression of log files until after they've been rotated.
-(Closes: #285871)
-    2238
-Make xdm support log rotation properly.
-+ Write patch #099x.
-  - Implement new ReopenLogFile() and ReopenLogFileNotify() functions.
-    ReopenLogFileNotify() is a signal handler for SIGUSR2.
-  - Move the definition of the WRITES() macro from error.c to dm_error.h
-    so that dm.c can use it as well.
-  - Document xdm's signal handling in its manpage.
-+ Update xdm's logrotate configuration to add a postrotate script which
-  signals xdm with SIGUSR2.
-(Closes: #303688)
-    2240
-Revert XLC_LOCALE/zh_TW.UTF-8 to the version shipped in 4.3.0.dfsg.1-6.
-Tetralet explained that Chinese users are likely to have the unifont
-package installed because it is part of Chinese tasks, and this font
-covers all needed glyphs.  With this font, having ISO10646 listed first
-in this file is harmless, whereas GTK1.2 apps are unreadable when it is
-at the bottom of this file.  (Closes: #296719)
-    2241
-Grab patches by Thomas Winischhofer from freedesktop.org's xorg CVS which
-fix the busted MiscPassMessage() extension implementation in xfree86 which
-1) copies from an invalid memory location, and 2) has memory leaks --
-neither is a good trait in a setuid root program like the X server.
-(Closes: #285807)
-    2242
-Grab patches by Chisato Yamauchi, David Dawes, and Marc Aurele La France
-from xfree86 CVS (none later than 2004-01-12), to perform bounds checking
-on font metrics and avoid SEGVs in xfs and the X server.  Resync patch
-#099v.  (Closes: #284448)
-    2243
-Apply patches from Alex Williamson (also in freedesktop.org xorg CVS) to
-make the XFree86 X server's ELF object loader ensure cache coherency on
-IA64.  Resync patch #071.  (Closes: #303461)
-    2244, 2246
-Update dexconf to use a new function, has_multiplexed_mouse(), to check
-the Linux kernel version and only write a "Generic Mouse" InputDevice
-stanza (and reference to it in the ServerLayout section) if the
-"Configured Mouse" is not a device type multiplexed through
-/dev/input/mice.  In Linux 2.4, only /dev/input/mouse* devices were
-treated this way, but now PS/2 and serial mouse devices are as well.  This
-resolves problems with button remapping and doubled mouse events which
-caused "warp speed" mouse motion.  (Closes: #269407)
-Replace mouse configuration code in xserver-xfree86.config.in with a
-function, configure_mouse(), which performs the same functions but adds
-knowledge of many more mouse types and attempts to guess a reasonable
-default mouse device (dependent on architecture and even sub-architecture
-in some cases) in the event detection does not work.  Add copious amounts
-of debugging statements (suppressed by default).  Among other things, this
-adds support for the /dev/adbmouse device node used on Apple Desktop
-Bus-equipped Macintoshes.  (Closes: #293527)
-    2248, 2249, 2253
-Fix translation error in Brazilian Portguese debconf template
-translations.  (Thanks, André Luís Lopes!)  (Closes: #308506)
-    2250
-Add Vietnamese debconf template translations.  (Thanks, Clytie Siddall!)
