[Xcb] Multithreading issues with libX11 / XCB

It seems to work perfectly! 
I started extensive testing today.

I had my problems in compliling the git sources in the tree because of some python error messages.
So I copied the src directory fromt the git tree on top of the libxcb-1.7 tree and compiled it which worked for me 

When will this fix be released?
I know you guys are talking about this a lot.

How can I promote this patch and/or the new version to be integrated into the official Suse releases?

This bug was fixed very recently on the xcb master branch. Please try
libxcb from git.
