Thanks. Does the problem also occur if you disable 2D acceleration
(Option "Accel" "off" should achieve that, or consult the cirrus driver
manpage)? If so, does it also occur with the vesa driver?
Also, because libX11 is used both on the server and client side, the
following experiment might help narrow down the problem: Start up the X
server while the old libx11-6 is installed. Then while the X server is
running, upgrade libx11-6 and then try reproducing the problem. Does it
