I'm following this stuff with great interest, but could you tell me if
the above bug is actually in the randr 1.2 library or elsewhere? I want
to push the proto+lib+app to my distro (and rebuild our standard 1.2
server with a hack to make it see only v1.1, and allow a devel server
with the 1.3 code to be package in addition). Obviously I wouldn't want
to do this if there is going to be a nasty segv bug :)

Thinking about it logically, I'm sure Keith with reply in due course
