beta4 on solaris

Hi all.  I just wanted to report that beta4 is working correctly on
solaris, except for a few problems..

- There was one unexplained crash, and another crash that even crashed the
kernel...

- xlock doesn't seem to sync to the correct frequently of the monitor, as
the image is complellyy unintelligible on my sparc 21" monitor.  However,
if I use the 'screen saver' option from the menu, it seems to work
correctly.  It seems to be some kind of incompatibility between the
/usr/openwin/bin/xlock binary and the window manager?

- Should I be using xset to control the screen saver?  In other words, how
do I lock the screen after, say, 15 minutes of inactivity?

Thanks,
Dave
