Hello all,


   I'm having a wierd issue with my current setup. I've just recently 
updated my source and have done build world and all that jazz. I may 
have done something wrong during mergemaster because now I'm unable to 
run Xorg properly. I've pin pointed the problem to the fluxbox menu. 
This is all under the user enviorment, I can right click on my mouse to 
pull up the fluxbox menu and I can scroll down with my mouse and select 
any of the first three options(eterm, firefox, run). As soon as my mouse 
goes over one of the listed directories, say for example "Terminals ->" 
, X crashes! The wierd thing about this situation is when I use my 
keyboard arrors instead of my mouse to scroll down the fluxbox menu, I'm 
able to go over the directories and navigate just fine! Log files don't 
say much about it either.......
