New Year went fine for me. I went to São Paulo to be with my girlfriend. We had a nice time drinking champagne and italian wine she got as a gift from Enrico when he came to Brasil for CONISLI. We walked a bit through Avenida Paulista which was having a very big party with 2 milion people expected, but we turned around and went back home real soon. On sunday we had a really fine time hacking together, which is always very cool.
I've been playing around with trying to help sort out some problems in GNOME's keyboard configuration stuff. I think many of the problems reported come from the fact that sarge's xlibs package has a bug which is already fixed in unstable.
I even installed a chroot to install xorg on it using packages from external sources so I don't fsck my system consistency to try to reproduce some segfaults on gnome-settings-daemon but with no success 'till now.
