Description michal 2000-03-23 22:47:37 EST
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.
