Are you reasonably confident that it's Xt that has been fixed upstream
or is that just a guess?  I.e., could it be Xlib insteaad?  Which way
would you bet?

It's not a really big deal, but I'm trying to get as much data as
possible in case someone else wants to sink their teeth into this.

(That might be me, armed with a diff of xf-4_3-branch and xf-4_4_0.)
