I've looked into this one and there were two problems here. The changes
have been checked in. See the bugzilla report for the details.

I've looked into these problems and fixed them.

I've checked in changes to fix this problem (and another one that the
first fix uncovered). The changes I had to make to event.c seemed
reasonable, but I would appreciate it if someone more familiar with
Xevie could look at the solution to make sure everything still works
Also, this brings up an issue that was raised on the xorg at fdo mailing
list: Are we going to keep Xevie in Xext or are we going to put it into
a library of its own?

Could someone start looking into this one? There are numerous failures
with -DDEBUG. This is going to take a while to sort out.

I have not been able to reproduce this one on an IA-32 box. There have
been quite a few changes since the bug report was filed, so I don't know
if this still occurs. Please verify that it still happens on your AMD64

Yes, documentation fixes are both still allowed and encouraged.
