Re: Ferret without an X display


This problem was introduced in version 4.40 or 4.41 which was the first
official release of the graphical user interface.  (Certain calls to
Xlib were made BEFORE determining whether the "-gui" flag was set.)
This bug was fixed in version 4.42.

If you cannot provide a valid X display for Ferret to use then you will have
to upgrade to a more recent release of Ferret.
