I received a warning message after Firefox downloaded the package (see
attached partial screen shot).  After pressing ok, I opened the
package and installed normally.  I was intrigued to see the little
"certificate" icon in the top right of the installer bar.  Clicking on
it showed your Thawte Freemail Member certificate.


Hey!  XDMCP really does work again!  Lots more messages in
Terminal.app than before, but no noticeable problems during a short

Quitting XQuartz...

Cool, thanks!

Using "ssh -Y" to log into my remote server and run X apps also
auto-spawned X11 properly.  Looks like my primary and secondary
use-cases are covered.  Sweet.
