Re: X buffer

FYI the other method of doing cut & paste in X is with XSelectionEvents.
I'm looking into possibly adding them to xwpe.  (Already removed some
inefficiency from the event handling.)

Bus error.  "Not good.  Not good.  Faries bad." (from Wizards)
Can you comment out the "sigaction(SIGBUS,..." line in we_unix.c?
Then load up the core file ('gdb /path/to/xwpe core') and get me the
stack trace ('where').

The max column code is hokey in my opinion.  I try to stay away from the
limit as a precaution.  (I've avoided debugging the buffer handling code
because I'd like to rip it out and replace it.)
