Hi Matt,


Five years ago you submitted this bug report. The outcome is quoted
below. Did you decide how to proceed?

I would prefer solution b, i.e. reassigning. Matt, would you be so
kind and do this?  You probably remember which "X man page" you were
referring to, and thus know which package is appropriate.  If you do,
please explain the issue in a non-xdvi-specific way, and make sure
that both the tetex list and the X strike force get a copy of the
mail (I knever know whether the control server or the BTS mailserver
is faster...)

Thank you in advance,
