Running xrestop from a remote host of a different endianness (i.e. sparc <-> x86)
causes the X server to crash in the X-Resource extension code.
Investigatin showed this was because ProcXResQueryClients &
ProcXResQueryClientResources access variables after byte swapping them,
thus getting very wrong results when using those as offsets into arrays
and in other calculations. Changing them to keep a non-byte-swapped copy on
the stack and to use that fixed the crash and allowed xrestop to run.
