Thanks for fixing it so quickly.

You are right, the test case had a bug and XRecordDisableContext call should be
there. The original test case had that call but I removed it when trying to
minimize it.

It's also possible to make the test case work without XRecordDisableContext by
    XCloseDisplay (ctrl_disp);
    XCloseDisplay (data_disp);
instead of
    XCloseDisplay (data_disp);
    XCloseDisplay (ctrl_disp);
at the end of the case.
