Description michal 2000-03-24 03:47:37 UTC
xloadimage attempts to access int variable through pointers to
unsigned longs (required by a used function prototype) causing
various nasties in the process.

Attached to this report is a patch for that and few other obvious
misfeatures (wrong numbers of arguments, arguments of wrong types)
and a spec file which applies this patch.
