FWIW, I had the exact opposite experience just now. I didn't realize
that the overlay is getting the input and was baffled why clicking on
anything didn't work... For me, the fix was:
my->composite_overlay, ShapeInput, 0, 0,
my->composite_overlay, ShapeInput, ShapeInvert);
Maybe you could try that to determine if it is a bug in the server or
just that some client code empties the input shape?
I'm using xephyr from a 1.1.1 server sources (apparently, debian etch
package) for testing.
