  1. Bug in new Xfree86

    There is a new Xfree for OS/2 on the netlabs ftp:

    ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/xfree86/4.5.0/

    Unfortunately, xinitrc.cmd in x450x11.zip is screwed. It seems that it
    contains UNIX-like end-of-line characters and OS/2 REXX considers the
    file as one big line. :-)

    Comparing the first line of the original file with a file containing
    the same line but made by me shows the difference clearly:

    reference file:
    2F 2A 20 4F │ 53 2F 32 20 │ 52 45 58 58 │ 20 2A 2F
    0D /* OS/2 REXX */.
    0A .

    original file:
    2F 2A 20 4F │ 53 2F 32 20 │ 52 45 58 58 │ 20 2A 2F
    0A /* OS/2 REXX */.
    2F 2A 20 24 │ 58 46 72 65 │ 65 38 36 3A │ 20 78 63
    2F /* $XFree86: xc/
