Thanks. My branch is heavily modified version of eXept one with lot of 
patches. I hope we will merge soon (once I finish S/X.VN integration :-)

However, I've no idea what's wrong - maybe something is wrong with
startup sequence (but this is strange, because my branch contains a
modified startup sequence). Or - more likely - some kind of interference
between ST/X VM, linux kernel, glibc and X.org. 

Well, I'll install a opensuse 11.1 a look at it. Is your system
a clean opensuse 11.1? KDE or GNOME or other WM? (believe or not -  
recently we fixed bug causing 100% CPU usage that was caused by 
the window manager).
We only run St/X on Ubuntu/Debian/Gentoo boxes :-(

That's not so easy - we keep our code in SVN repositories and
SVN support is not yet integrated to the eXept mainline. 

You may patch original eXept St/X and install SVN support
using steps described here:

Or better, use my branch, which has all those tools already integrated.
I'll try to build my branch for windows during this week.

Which one? :-)

Cheers, Jan 

P.S.: At least, we can do some hacking on ESUG. I'll show you how
      to use St/X :-)
