(I know this is an old message I'm replying to, so you've probably
already been told this.)

There's more to X11R6.1 than the servers. In particular, some of the
shared libraries that clients use have been updated. Some of these
updates are for new features of the server, for instance DGA. Others
are security fixes, for instance in Xt.
