(1) I didn't look at xfree86 upstream
(2) I didn't check the history of Debian's xfree86 patches back very far.
(3) I made the assumption that the Ubuntu folks would have pulled all the
changes from Debian except possibly the most recent ones.
(4) the changes appeared to have been present since before the Ubuntu fork.
I guess either (3) or (4) was just wrong. If (4) is wrong, it's just my
stupidity. If (3) is wrong, it shows the necessity of a patch audit.

Yes, that's fine. :-) I didn't mean to be hostile to Ubuntu.

Eeeew. What is this Sun guy complaining about? Can't the current upstream
maintainers just "do it"? :-(
