Hmmm, my LinuxELF doesn't seem to be working as well as Solaris2.4 and
HPUX. It's not actually having problems opening the display but in all
cases it eventually gets an "unknown event" error. 

I'm just using the demo hello.lsp from the clx distribution.

I used an older version of clisp (july 1994) to build clx and then ran the
demo program fine. If I had to guess it would be that the stream reading
and writing functions are the problem.

I'll do some more investigating.
