[Xcb] FPE with clang

I use awesome 3.4.4 as my window manager. It is linked against
xcb-util 0.3.6 with


applied (not applying it does not change anything about the outcome of
the procedure described below).

Running feh 1.3.4 inside xterm 258 makes awesome crash. Here's a backtrace:

Program received signal SIGFPE, Arithmetic exception.

exit_code=0) at awesome.c:572

and here's what dmesg has to say:

[   42.886387] awesome[4068] trap divide error ip:7f45eb41477b
sp:7fff548fbab0 error:0 in libxcb-icccm.so.1.0.0[7f45eb412000+4000]

My C compiler is clang

  clang version 2.0 (trunk 103466)
  Target: x86_64-pc-linux-gnu
  Thread model: posix

It's what I compiled xcb-util with. Compiling xcb-util with gcc 4.4.4
keeps the issue from occurring. What libxcb, awesome and feh are
compiled with does not appear to matter.

xcb-util passes `make check`; llvm and clang pass their respective
test suites, too.

Kind regards,
