Description Kevin Maguire 2000-09-19 12:34:17 EDT

I noted an error in my .xsession-errors file.  It related to the following
section of /etc/X11/xdm/Xsession

% rpm -qf /etc/X11/xdm/Xsession

if [ -z $XKB_IN_USE -a ! -L /etc/X11/X ]; then
For some reason this did not work, and generated an error about too many
arguments.  I simply replaced the "-a" with "&&" and the message went away.

A previous bug report states that replacing $XKB_IN_USE with "$XKB_IN_USE" in
both places in Xsession where it appears in [] (lines 55 and 66) fixes the
