Testing needed for xorg-server security update

there's been a new release of xorg-server fixing multiple security
vulnerabilities: http://lists.x.org/archives/xorg-announce/2014-December/002500.html

The update is ready for Wheezy/stable and has been successfully tested 
on an Intel graphics adapter.

But since different hardware will exercise different code paths and
since the backported patches are rather huge in size, so I'd like to
have some additional pre-release testing on people running Debian
stable/wheezy with the nouveau driver or the radeon driver. (Additional
testing with the intel driver would be great as well).

You can fetch the updated packages for i386 and amd64 at 

Since a lot of the changes involve GLX, you could e.g. test with OpenArena
or Nexuiz. Playing games _and_ helping out Debian, when do you ever have 
the chance for that :-)

Please report success or errors to team@security.debian.org
