That's why bug tracking systems are helpful.  I don't know what
information to give them, and I'm not even sure how to gather it... a
debug version of UT or something maybe, but no one is helping me... If I
could get these games to run on my system with Sawfish OK I could
uninstall KDE and/or XFce.  Just like I uninstalled Windows when all the
games I liked ran in WINE..
