Fair enough. My apologies. I installed the debugging libs for Xlib  
and libXi and went down into the core. The event is actually received  
and decoded. After that it enqueued but I don't know what happens  
afterwards. I think it never comes out of whatever queue is used  
internally and is passed on. Weird.

btw. you guys did a great job. I managed to add the client side for  
the MPX extension in such a short time I was amazed. Fantastic.
