[ardour-dev] time/position/value helper missing

It seems the problem has gone this unexpected way (I'm not sure the info
below is valuable for ardour development):

1. glibc was updated from shot up to,

2. already reported basename.cc compiling error returned (earlier this
   problem was reported and "resolved" with glibc downgrading),

3. libs/pbd/basename.cc:6 was modified this way (I don't understand this):

      basename (const char *path) throw ()

  and the app (11 october cvs snapshort) was successfully compiled.

4. verbose cursor text is visible now.

gcc-3.3.4-r2 (gentoo) is under using.

apparently, the font used for the "verbose cursor" isn't available
with your X server configuration. alas, it is hard-coded into ardour
at present:


if you make it available, things will work as expected. i believe.
