Can you spell this out please? I don/t understand.

Incidentally, in the last couple of days I made a second installation of
Debian on a spare section of disk. In stable everything worked correctly,
as expected. I upgraded to Testing and it still worked. I then upgraded
to Sid and the problem reappeared. I really can't believe I am the only
user finding this. Is it a bug in X on Sid? (I originally reported it as
a bug in i3 but it is not confined to that wm.)
