My first thought when looking at your patch was Wow! Don't you just love it
when a patch fixes a bug and at the same time consigns 142 lines to the
waste bin of history?

I now see that most of the 'fix' is actually the removal of commented out
X11 code and that the actual fix is one line setting the pen width. 
Nonetheless, well done and thank you for tracking this down.

Having said that, I'd be cautious about removing the X11 code if you
(collective you) haven't yet implemented the equivalent functionality.
