Bug#440880: xserver-xorg-core: bad behaving clients can starve other clients

Package: xserver-xorg-core
Version: 2:
Severity: minor


I tried the xrender benchmark from
http://www.freedesktop.org/~zack/xrenderbenchmark.tar.bz2, and when I
ran it, it virtually locked up every other X client. I think this is a
problem, although such clients are uncommon. Also, I think it would be
quite hard to implement some kind of fairness in the xserver.
