Hi there,

On   3 Jun, this message from Geert Uytterhoeven echoed through cyberspace:

I applied the patch; XF4 works (just as badly) as before, but Xpmac
crashes big-time (panic on access of bad area (9C9C9D9D, iirc). makes
syslogd panic as well ??). But it started misbehaving already before
your patch, so there is probably something else as well...

I'll keep on looking.
