Yes. That's because I'm a bad, bad person.

Well, that's the trouble. The answer is "sort of". There's the X Test
Suite, which is Xlib-specific. (It's also difficult to modify, for both
technical and bureaucratic reasons.) There's a pathetic little XCB test
suite too. (Want to help make it better?) But I've written some tests
for both Xlib and XCB that are designed to be nearly identical, and they
should stay together. I haven't decided where to put those yet. Maybe a
new directory in the XCB repository.

I didn't think so. I was halfway through filing the bug report when I
had finished testing the fix, and figured there wasn't any point in
filing a bug report I was going to close immediately.

I'm happy to listen to reasons why I should do differently next time
