Yep -- dozens of times. Of course, I'm running real, honest to Pete,
X11R6.1, not that abortion OpenLose. It's not the OS, it's the crappy
version of X that comes standard with SunOS 4.1.x. IMHO, OpenLose was
Sun's first step on the road to the depredations of Solaris 2.x.
Almost as bad as IRIX 6.x in terms of breaking *everything*. :-)

Oh, well, to each their own.

I'm sure this is boring most everyone else. I'll try to be quiet now.
