not really bugs ...

if someone types xwin or startx in an rxvt console window, it can do strange things ... putting a line like this at the beginning of xwin might prevent problems

[ -z $DISPLAY ] || exit


i put -br in xwin, in the line that starts Xorg ... i think it looks nicer to start X with a black background than a grey checked background ... at least, when X starts from a text terminal which also has a black background ... Xorg faqs

in xwin, i changed:

... .xinitrc -- -nolisten tcp ...


... .xinitrc -- -br -nolisten tcp ...

(by the way, i think -nolisten tcp will prevent chroot from being able to run X windows)


if this line in .xinitrc:


is changed to:

[ -x $CURRENTWM ] && exec $CURRENTWM
exec jwm

it would make X more likely to start if the wm would not normally be found (for example, someone types xwin fvwm when fvwm is not installed)

the first line starts the wm if it is found in PATH
the second line starts the wm if it is a vaild executable file, but not in the PATH
the third line starts the default wm if $CURRENTWM does not seem to make sense
