I have seen, that XShm depends not directly on shm, but the
server and the official release does not contain shm
support. That means supporting xfree 4.2.0 requires a
patched xserver. This is very bad. :-(
So I see two ways to solve this problem. First we can choose
provide a patched xserver release and have to support it
second or we wait for the coming cygwin(-daemon) release
with shm support, of which I don't know when this would be

BTW: The libICE patch (missing _IceLastMajorOpcode symbol)
is obsolate, because kde >= 2.2 dcop uses a patched ICE lib,
which is integrated into kdelibs, so only libXext is left.

Any comments ?
