But this can only be done by patching the binary. Replace "/tmp/XWin.log"
"/dev/null\0log" (the \0 marks the character with ascii code 0.

Oh, you were saying to patch the binary, not the source.  I missed that at first and was wondering why you had the \0 in the middle of the string, now it makes sense.  That would be easier than fixing and recompiling the source, since I have only downloaded the binaries so far.
