I find I'm not .. getting on with the forced uppercase stuff (sorry), and would
prefer to go back to the first version you posted.  regarding that, I did a
'diff' on the respective 'vfe/unix/unixconsole.cpp' files, is the 'XInitThreads'
call (including surrounding conditional) the only thing that would need to be
added to allow the _f9bc4ef7 version to function safely wrt X11?
