I have no older version handy but found the same code in all releases up to
XFree 4.0. I'll check if I find older binaries at home.

I'll take a look at the ls_netdev output you've sent me some time ago and
will try to trace which interface is used first and which can be discarded.

If you use it without -from parameter there must either be a message in the 
logfile about xdm giving up (sesssion declined error) or some message at the 
xdm server. You'll have to wait a short time until the timeout happens.
