Yes. I think this is a problem in every X installation at the moment. I'm
wondering whether to have a look through the server source myself, or just
forward this bug report to the XFree86 people. I haven't received a
response from them yet about any of the bug reports I've sent to them
before, so I'm not very hopeful.
Expect slow movement on this problem.
