Hello guys,

    Ok, 120 system calls after the last one, I need some more help.
If somebody can quickly look up the IRIX X sources, I would appreciate
if you could tell me how a little routine works.

    The source code should be in a directory called:
xc/programs/Xserver/hw/sgi 

    The code does an open on /dev/shmiq and then opens: sprintf (buf,
"/dev/qcntl%d", mistery_variable) I want to know how it computes
mistery_variable.  I am obviously screwing something in the shmiq
emulation code. 

Cheers,
Miguel.
