We look to have a couple of spurious files in the root ("/") of Xlibs.gz?
Code: [Select]
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            31 Jul 23 16:35 Xlibs.gz
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            43 Jul 23 16:35 Xlibs.gz.md5.txt
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root            11 Jul 23 16:35 libpng.so -> libpng12.so
