Many thanks to those who responded regarding my two questions.
With regards to the CNTL-ALT-BACKSPACE sequence and its ability
(or lack thereof) to cause an immediate shutdown of the X server...
well... I _did_ go and read the Handbook section that Manolis Kiagias
kindly posted a link to, and I have now tried _both_ of the two
ways described there to re-enable CNTL-ALT-BACKSPACE functionality
for the X server, and sadly I must report that for me, at least
_neither_ of those methods worked. I did everything exactly and
precisely as described. I even cut and pasted the code in the Handbook
that was suggested for the /usr/local/etc/hal/fdi/policy/x11-input.fdi
file, and still, CNTL-ALT-BACKSPACE is producing no effect whatsoever
for me. This is on 7.2-RELEASE/amd64.
What now? send-pr?
