How reproducible:

Actual results:
A warning message about errors when the booleans are set.

Expected results:
No warning.

Additional info:
Maybe the intention was to set allow_write_xshm?

Error still present in the strict policy package as reported initially.

Comment 3 Göran Uddeborg 2005-09-15 20:15:56 UTC
But hello?  This is a bug in the strict policy.  There hasn't been an "current
release" 1.25.4-10.1 of the strict policy.  There hasn't been any update at all
of the strict policy as far as I can see.

Was closing a mistake?  Or is the strict policy being abandoned and not supported?

Strict is not being abandoned.  Sorry about not updating it.
