Bart, here is what I think will happen based on what I see here, I think 
it will get past XFree-4-servers ok, but the next program that needs
dri is going to bring the wrong one back in and so the looping will 
start on something else. If I were you I would hold off updating for 
now until I can give you a certain fix.
