Hi Xorg :)

For some time now, i've noticed that Xorg is flooding /var/log/Xorg.0.log with these lines :

Xorg.0.log.old:[ 119.058] (II) XKB: reuse xkmfile 

I've grossly calculated that nearly *30 lines are added every second*...

this morning, the total line number is ~ 1 916 245

Of course, I don't believe this is a normal behaviour, so I would like to stop te flood... 
Any clue ?

By the way, the video driver is 'nouveau'...

Despite this, my system is functionnal, so it's (apparently) not a matter of life or 
death, but...

Here is the output of inxi -Fx, if it helps
