Who can explain the diff between Xserver-1.6.4 version and >1.7 version about the ExaGetPixmapAddress?

Hi, Maarten,
	You can see my attachment screenshot, in this example, when run to the line 177-178, the pPixData is 0xb62b000, pExaScr->info->memoryBase is 0xb5e2b000,pExaScr->info->memorySize is 17825792, if only have "<", the judge will not come into existence. 
	You can try it. If not come into existence. The fb_ptr address value is 0x0.

If your memory base is 20000, your offscreen memory size is 10000,
then 20000 to 29999 are valid addresses. If you enter 30000 - 10000 <=
20000, then that would be true, which is wrong, that's why it's just
"<", because addressing starts from 0 not 1.

Life spent, a precious moment, in the wink of an eye we live and we die.
