xscope is a program to monitor the connections between an X11 server and 
a client program. 

This bugfix release features a overhaul of the memory allocation in xscope,
which should reduce memory usage in common situations, by dynamically 
allocating buffers per client that connects, instead of pre-allocating a 
32K buffer for every possible concurrent connection.   It also fixes other 
issues raised by various static analysis tools and compiler warnings.

      Clean up existing malloc calls
      Stop wrapping malloc & free
      Call realloc() instead of open coding it
      Use calloc() instead of malloc(); bzero();
      Use strdup instead of malloc(strlen+1); strcpy();
      Ensure ScopeHost global is initialized when built with USE_XTRANS
      Make CS dynamically allocated
      Make ReplyQ dynamically allocated
      Allocate buffers dynamically as needed instead of as part of fdinfo struct
      Make FDinfo dynamically allocated
      Remove StaticMaxFD now that all uses now allocate dynamically
      File descriptors should be stored in ints not shorts
      Store ClientNumber as int instead of converting back & forth to long
      Add const attributes to clear gcc -Wwrite-strings warnings
      Remove extra definition of ScopeEnabled from x11.h
      Fix builds of scope.c with Solaris Studio compilers
      Mark panic() as _X_NORETURN
      Check the right return value for malloc failure
