and did not state that 'x' was a toggle, which may have been obvious
to you but not to me for reasons I explained regarding my not
too frequent use of xdvi binary. I discovered that hitting the 'x' key
made the menus appear. Only later could I find that 'x' again also
made them disappear.

Besides the problematic .xdvirc for me contains xdvi.expertMode:	0
which I interpret as turning off the expert mode, and I read Paul
message as informing me that hitting 'x' would turn *on* the expertMode
hence solving my problem and registering xdvi.expertMode: 7 in .xdvirc
hence it was only confirmation of what I knew.

Really, so you simply admit for being prejudiced against me, for
some reasons which you keep private?

Could it as simple as not liking my pseudo "jfbu" ?

Could you please substantiate your claims, I am ready to
discuss any single occurrence where I had to express myself
in a possibly strong way.

Substantiate please.
