Package: xdm Version: 1:1.1.6-3 Severity: wishlist I noticed something this time while happening to be starting at the screen when xdm starts: *Twice* during the oh, two seconds that xdm takes to start, the screen has this being powered off look to it, where there is this tide of powered off screen area that advances toward the center from the edges of the screen, only getting about 1/4 of the way though. Anyway, this tells me that something is being done twice at the perhaps unfortunate wear and tear of the hardware. If this was a simple program (like expr(1)), perhaps it would be no big deal, but starting X windows certainly should be done with care for using the hardware non-wastefully... Attached log file. P.S., inform me if (EE) and (WW)'s can be helped. Thanks. Anyway, one way to test would be to start xdm on a very slow/loaded system and watch what was going on on the screen. Of course I can't help, as my mountaintop equipment has no backup, and I prefer to just report bugs and leave looking under the hood for the experts. P.S., xdm looks good on 800x600 now, but bevel bug is still present at larger values.
