I was hoping for a (what appears to be a "not our bug") response that was 
more helpful WRT whose bug it likely is. To me it's clearly a bug report that 
either can be found or needs to be made at bugs.freedesktop.org, but in what 
component? https://bugs.freedesktop.org/describecomponents.cgi?product=xorg 
has a long list, among which there is only one that includes the string 
intel, Driver/intel, which is what this list seems to be about. Does it look 
like Server/General, Server/DDX/Xorg, or something else? As it manifest in 
more than one distro, it surely isn't likely to be downstream.
