Oops...yup I know where the prob is - will fix it up soon and send.

I had submitted the patches to this list. I'll try and put up git server on a 
hostmonster account I have access to. Any public or other preferred git 
servers you can recommend would also be great.


Bye for now

My app is still in its infancy. But at least xcb seems to work. Tested
with Vista something (don't know, and don't care either), Wine 1.1.19.

One minor thing: DISPLAY=:0 does not work. How about making DISPLAY=:0
equivalent to DISPLAY=tcp/localhost:0 (until someday Xming/CygwinX
supports a more efficient transport)?
