--- Comment #17 from dave.kinsell at tamsinc.com ---
I ran into this on a product we sell, normally running on RedHat or CentOS. 
With a fully patched RHEL6u6 (64bit), it's still there for 32 bits executables,
 using libxcb-1.9.1-2.  One of our end customers created a program just
displaying the time in a window, in a tight loop, which caused crashes in about
32 hrs.  Testing   while (1) XNoOp(dsp);   it dies in less than five minutes on
modest hardware.

For a bug that apparently has been around since 2006, it's still causing
headaches in 2015.  Are the vendors ever going to push a fix out for this
