Description of problem:
The manual page entry for XConfigureWindow (/usr/X11R6/man/man3/XConfigureWindow.3x) is missing the 4th arg (values).

It should be:

int XConfigureWindow(Display *display, Window w, unsigned value_mask,  XWindowChanges *values);

but the distributed documentation is missing the "values" arg.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.man XConfigureWindow

Actual Results:  wrong prototype for XConfigureWindow displayed (only 3 args)

Expected Results:  prototype should have 4 args

Additional info:

This must mean that I am the first person to have ever read the documentation for XConfigureWindow.

Entirely possible. ;)

Please report issues of this nature directly to X.Org bugzilla at
http://bugs.freedesktop.org in the "xorg" component.  Once the problem
is reported there, it'll be fixed in CVS, and be present in the next release
of X.

But if the release number contains FC4 doesn't that seem to indicate that RedHat
has branded it as their own branch?  And if so, shouldn't somebody take a little
more responsibility for the items on which they append their own revision
numbers?  And for which they supply 24 patches?

Why are RedHat factory workers so nonchalantly lazy?
