I also spent some time trying to assess all possible cases (with very
limited knowledge on xlib internals), and I'm pretty sure Jonas has
dedicated even more time than the both of us did, but that's not the issue

I agree the patch is hard, and maybe a more satisfactory solution could be
imagined by redesigning the 32-bit sequence numbers so that it aligns
better with xcb, but at some point a decision needs to be taken. In that
sense it *is* probably better to push the patch than to leave the current
situation as is where the application program just simply crashes...

Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
