I'm no X hacker, but in general, libraries are not assumed to not segfault
if you pass them the wrong arguments.
The declaration of this function includes:
char * /* buffer_return */
int /* bytes_buffer */
I haven't read the API doco, but I guess if bytes_buffer is longer than
the size of allocated space for buffer_return, it's likely to segfault.
(this includes when buffer_return is unallocated)
