Only one of Xlib or XCB can handle events on a single connection to the
X server, and you have to tell Xlib which it is.
You should find that your program works if you call
XSetEventQueueOwner(dpy, XCBOwnsEventQueue) after opening the Display
but before making any other Xlib calls.
It occurs to me that we haven't really, uh, tested that particular claim
though. So if you have further difficulties please do let us know. :-)

Don't forget to 'free(ev)' somewhere too. :-)

It's probably basically coincidence that you got your extension events
but not other kinds. Any time you call into Xlib and it waits for an X
server response, if it owns the event queue, it's going to pull all the
events it can find out of XCB's queue. I bet you got your extension's
events because they came just after you made requests to your extension,
and you didn't make any intervening Xlib calls.
