Description Bastien Nocera 2005-09-07 07:11:30 EDT
The original Xfree86 bug was fixed:

But the problem still occurs with X.org's fstobdf.
Filed with X.org as 4381.
Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2005-09-12 12:00:15 EDT
Thanks Bastien.  I've reviewed the upstream bug report you posted, the
source code, and the patch attached to the upstream bug report.

The patch seems low-risk, and is used in later XFree86 releases.  I think
it is reasonable to include this patch in Fedora development and get it
tested, then assuming no regressions or other problems occur, 
when development begins on RHEL4U3 we can consider including this in
the update also.

Thanks again.
