Because my code-generator produces different code for CARD8- and
char-types. The char-type triggers the generation of special code to put
the data into a std::string (C++).
The python bindings had the same issue which lead to the patch
http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/xcb/2007-July/002919.html /No.1 I
don't know if it already has been solved another way.
