Why won't linuxconf -display foo.bar.ie:0.0 & work?
The user is logged into an RH5.2 box from a PC, running
Reflection X, which we have used successfully for remote
management many times running against Suns and Alphas.
xhost is therefore presumably set correctly, and the
use is logged inwith a userid whose privs are set to
allow use of linuxconf and to become superuser.
$ linuxconf -display foo.bar.ie:0.0 &
$ <user hits CR>
 Segmentation fault linuxconf -display foo.bar.ie:0.0 (core dumped)

Is linuxconf crocked, or is there some additional layer
of protection going on here? This is going to kill Linux
as a server OS here if this doesn't work.
