Ok then the problem is in xserver-xorg-core 1.3 in testing. You could
try 1.2 from
so that we know more about when the bug appeared?
Also, it would be very nice if you could test xserver-xorg-core 1.4 in
unstable in case
the bug is fixed now. But you will have to upgrade many packages to do
so. Any chance
you could try that?
