I can understand the move away from /usr/X11...  but why didn't it go
to /usr/share/X11 or something like that, rather than straight into the
root trees?

If I do a "ls -l /etc/X11", I also find two dead links, thus:
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root   24 Nov  4 01:41 X -> ../../usr/X11R6/bin/Xorg
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root   24 Sep 23  2005 X.rpmsave -> ../../usr/X11R6/bin/Xorg

I expect the second one (the rpmsave) does no harm, but I don't like the
looks of the first.  What's really odd, is that despite the listing
highlighting the link as broken (inverse red highlighting), the files
*are* where it points to.  Though the Xorg file (in /usr/X11R6/bin/) is
also oddly highlighted in inverse red.  I presume that's due to the
owner sticky bit being set.

-rws--x--x  1 root root 2191903 Sep 22  2005 Xorg

My system was a clean install, and normal updates via YUM.
