I'm aware of that. But removing "-Werror" only hides a symptom from view;
there may still be an underlying disease. I'm not familiar enough with X
programming to judge whether the warning is harmless, or whether it really
points to a problem that needs to be fixed.

Debian is slowly moving towards a new release; switching to a CVS version is
not an option. Applying patches from CVS selectively is though.

Can you tell me where exactly that patch can be found?

I'd love to, but X programming isn't in my skill set.

What is this talk of software 'releases'? Klingons do not 'release'
software; our software ESCAPES, leaving a bloody trail of designers and
quality assurance people in its wake!
