In searching for uses of Xlibint.h in current Gtk+ CVS, I can't see any
way for it to cause the bug you're seeing. It's only used in gdkasync.c,
and looking at the CVS history, that file hasn't really changed since
2.8 was branched, so there's no obvious culprit yet. But since I'm
running Gtk+ 2.8.20 and you're running 2.8.9, I suppose there could have
been some bug in your version that's been fixed since.

Still, I can't rule out the possibility that there's some really subtle
bug in the new libX11 and yours is just the first case where anybody has
noticed. So thanks for filing the bug report.

I may be able to test on a SUSE 9.1 box in the next few days, and
we'll see if I can reproduce the problem; or if any of the several
SUSE engineers on this list want to look into it, I'd sure appreciate
that. :-)
