One of the down sides of the net is that the meaning of no response at
all is ambiguous.  In person at least you can get some reading from
the other party's body language.

So, for instance, nobody might care, as you postulate.  Or maybe
everyone is too busy.  Or, maybe nobody knows the answer (in which
case the protocol is not to answer, instead of flooding the list with
"I dunno").  Or maybe, like me, everybody was out of town for the
weekend and is now drowning in the backlog of email.

FT> iii) Start gimp using <Panel>/Graphics/The Gimp
FT> iv ) Open an xterm and send gimp a signal like

FT> v  ) Bingo! you have a hung X session (At least I do on three machines
FT>            running RH-4.2 and RH-5)

In this particular case, the answer really is "I don't know".

When you say "hung X session", what do you mean?  Do you mean that the
mouse and keyboard stop responding?  In this case, you've probably
found an X server bug, and there's nothing the Gnome project can do
about it.  Instead, you must submit a bug report to whoever maintains
your X server.

I don't have gimp installed on my machine, so I can't really test this
right now.  Does it happen with any other programs (e.g., one I might
already have installed)?

What exactly did they say?  Maybe they thought they were helping, but
phrased it in a way that wasn't very clear.
