Hi Lex,

I've also experienced this problem running on Solaris, with a 2.4 VM.  At
the time I ignored the problem because that setup was only a temporary
development stopgap before moving to a headless VM.  I assumed (without
much thought) that it was some sort of X-Windows problem...

This was with both unmodified and modified servers.
