You press the "/" key and no slash appears in the editor? Or you load 
the font and the "/" stops working?

How do you load the font, using "setfont" from the command line or by 
modifying configuration files?

The disadvantage of X is that full funcationality is not possible. But we 
are doing the maximum possible and will continue to push the limits :)
