This answer from MicroImage is incorrect!!!!

Read their FAQ on their web site.  It says, Windows version is X11R5 compliant.  
I used X11R6.4 libraries.  X11R5 is out-dated and any X-server which uses X11R5
is useless.

I do not have in the form of Patches.  I am not good at creating diff files.   What I have
if edited source code.  I have a limited space on my web server and I am not in the mood of
paying extra $15.00 per month to my ISP for having another 5 MB space.
