 Mostly desktop apps, which is what I think you mean (to me, X is
just Xorg and Mesa - I wouldn't argue with classing freetype,
fontconfig, etc as part of X).

 But, I've also seen problems which I believe to be XML-related (at
one time, printing from abiword was broken by a libxml2 update, and
with _my_ latest ghostscript (haven't had time to update that)
there is what I think is an XML problem which causes my own printer
model to disappear from the list provided by gutenprint, although I
can see it in the raw XML list in the program source - also saw that
once in the past, when upgrading gs, and fortunately I can pretend it
is a different model of printer with satisfactory results.  Sure,
abiword is desktop, and I suppose gs is (because of the way _we_
have built it, to be able to display the tiger).

das eine Mal als Tragödie, das andere Mal als Farce
