/usr/X11R6/include/X11/bitmaps/Stipple should be named
"stipple" and it's contents should be "stipple_" and
not "Stipple_". this breaks things like xscreensaver
which use these files.

    Actually the problem is that this directory should contain two files named "Stipple" and "stipple". The one you want is stipple, but it is being overwritten by Stipple because Mac OS X's HFS+ file system is not case sensitive. We'll have to resolve this name conflict. Changing the bug name to reflect the real problem

    Fixed in the TOT. The capitalized file is now called Stippler. The fix may make it to the XFree86 4.2 branch as well.
