I'm pretty sure the thinking here is that, since it's third party software,
current vs. stable doesn't apply in the same way.
On a side note, I haven't had any real problems running the current ports
And, just to note, my ports lists ver. XFree86-4.3.0,1

If you use cvsup with compression, it shouldn't be too big to just get the
ports tree. (I think it was just over 30 megs when I did it...)

I'd like to ask you more about this 'mouse bug,' but it's not really
appropriate on this list. (though it does really sound interesting.) If you
still can't get it to work, I'll watch for your post to -questions.
