Thanks for the explanation.  But precisely where did you fix it?  In
live-package? (seen nothing such in your net patch), in casper? (do
not see where yet...), in xorg itself???  In that latter case (if you
confirm) I think it deserves at least a wishlist bug in xorg and
letting know the Debian x-strike-force of the problem.

Best regards,
