I just don't see how using an uninitialized variable in an "if"
statement can be anything else but a bug.  You could have at least
looked at the code in question before replying.  You are a member of
XFree representing ppc linux aren't you?  I assumed with your signature
and your earlier responses, you were the right person to contact.  If
not, I apologize for bothering you.

Thanks Olaf,

Glad to see it helped and is in CVS.
