If /etc/X11/app-defaults is really being created as a file instead of a
directory, this is the first that I've heard of it.  It would be very
interesting to hear why that is.

But, then, maybe if we implemented that idea of not allowing setup.exe
to have any bugs, or to at least have it issue an error before it was
about to hit a bug, we'd be further down the line to fixing this.

Just a suggestion.
