I can wait a week to fix the code, I guess I should send it back to VA
to see if they'll actually include it in the base XFree Release. Someone
else is already working on a Glide3 port, so X would be looking pretty useful
for Voodoo3 owners d8)
Too bad I need those locks, the pulsar hack that comes with xscreensaver
normally runs around 50fps (or 0.5 fps w/o drm) -- I get way over 200fps
with all the locks disabled d8) Of course if I suspend it while its running
the machine freezes... I can live with that for a while anwyay.
