Package: xbase
Version: 3.1.2-4

  I have setup xdm not to start an X server, and when I say
"X -indirect localhost", I get the chooser window with a list of hosts
on the network. (Chooser is broadcasting.) If I selected any other
machine on the network, it pauses for a few seconds, and then returns
to the chooser. If I select localhost or my machine name, it gives me
a login window. "X -indirect mymachine" does work.

  My guess is that when xdm gets an indirect from localhost, and it
wants to forward the request, it passes on as the client
