Not yet.

The libX11 from pkgsrc package has stubs for the various thread 
definitions like pthread_self. This doesn't use 

The libX11 from modular that I am using didn't build or use the 
UIThrStubs.c stubs file, because pthread_self was detected. But this library doesn't appear to use libc_r either.

Looking closer, it appears nothing (in the modular Xorg) is built using 
"-pthread" except the "ico" program.

I am guessing it is related: I can run the X server fine. I can run the X 
clients fine to a remote X server. But it crashes with signal 11 when a 
client attempts to run on the new X server. The X server runs and on the 
console it just continues to dump a message from the WaitFor routine about 
that bogus errno=672964768.

I also tried with the stubs built into libX11 and then also with the safe 
API definition, but no luck. Now I am rebuilding the rest of X now that I 
have built libX11 with the stubs.

I am not sure how I can code a small portion of this for testing because 
it is in the middle of ton of X server code and I am not sure what else is 
going on.
