The reason why the grace developper blames FreeBSD
is because of this:
The executable 'xmgrace' is linked to
'strings /usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.so.6 | grep libXcursor'
So according to the grace developper, the reason
for my problem is a problem with libX11.so.6.
But I know nothing about this stuff....
By the way: can someone also explain to me why
libX11.so.6 has the string "libXcursor.so.1.0.2".
I will then forward this to the grace mailinglist,
and tell them that there's something wrong with Grace.
Thank so much!
