The FAQ ( http://egcs.cygnus.com/faq.html#linuxkernel ) does say this is a
bug, not me !
The only thing I am certain about is that when the kernel has been
compiled with gcc then XFree works fine, while when the same
kernel has been compiled with egcs 1.1b then launching XFree triggers
this _X11TransSocketUNIXConnect error...
