However, this was not the case, XFREE still crashes with enlightenment.
I do not know why.
In another possibly related problem, I cannot use xawtv (only fxtv)

drivers and just the nv drivers, xawtv runs, but I know get garbage on
the screen and a brtr sigalarm.
does anyone have any idea what is going on?
