So I wonder how we can help the port maintainer to fix the issue. Maybe 
it's an idea to collect some data on installed ports (including 
versions), used hardware and whether or not one has problems?

The only problem I'm having since 7.3 btw (I forgot about that, but just 
remembered) is everytime I start nethack-qt (either local or remote) X 
restarts, kicking me out of my session.
