Version 1.1.1 - 2006-11-30

The "xcompmgr is hard, let's go releasing" release

* Fix Bug #9154 and friends, to unbreak xcompmgr:
  Always process an event for _XReadEvents, even if an error occurs.
  Previously, process_responses (in the wait_for_first_event case called
  from _XReadEvents) considered any return from xcb_wait_for_event
  sufficient to think it had processed an event. If xcb_wait_for_event
  returned an error, and no more events occurred before process_responses
  called xcb_poll_for_event, process_responses would try to return with
  dpy->head NULL, and would fail an assertion for the _XReadEvents
  postcondition. Now, process_responses continues using xcb_wait_for_event
  until it gets an event.

* Bug #9153: Fix access to freed memory.
  The fix for bug #8622 introduced a smaller bug where _XReply would
  read memory shortly after freeing it. This patch caches the needed
  value in a stack-allocated variable before the heap-allocated memory
  is freed.

* libx11 doesn't use inputproto in public headers; don't require it in x11.pc.
  Based on a Debian patch.

* Debian bug #354315: Clarify return value in XGetWindowAttributes man page.
  Patch by Debian user Ross Combs.
