After updating libX11 and libXfont:
x11-libs/libX11-1.0.3 -> [1.1.1-r1]
x11-libs/libXfont-1.2.2 -> [1.2.7-r1]

krdc starts to crash for no obvious reason. It does not generate any errors or
faults, it just disappears with a normal exit.

Additional information:

The update of x11-libs/libX11 from 1.0.3 to 1.1.1-r1 quite probably causes
this problem.

Since this update on my computer rdesktop segfaults reproducibly. A downgrade
of libX11 back to 1.0.3 solved the problem.

As krdc is some sort of frontend of rdesktop at least for means of connecting
to a Windows Terminal Server probably the segfaulting of rdesktop causes the
crashes of krdc.

Additional information:

See the comment:

libX11 patch for CVE-2007-1667 causes Opera to segfault
This also seems to break rdesktop, see
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=418021 .
It looks like some apps don't check the return value from XCreateImage(), and
that the added checks make it return NULL where the apps expected success.
