Bug#486507: libx11-6: Locking assertion failure with vmware-server-console

I replaced the two occurrences of libXrender.so.1 in vmware (/vmware/lib and vmware-server-console/lib) with a link to /usr/lib/libXrender.so.1.3.0, which is what libXrender.so.1 is anyway. I got the following result:

rick@rick:~$ vmware-server-console
vmware-server-console: ../../src/xcb_lock.c:77: _XGetXCBBuffer: Assertion `((int                        ) ((xcb_req) - (dpy->request)) >= 0)' failed.

Understood!  I will try to look at and let you know what I find out.

I occasionally use vmware and I really like it, but this issue has encouraged me to use virtualbox ose.
The only thing vbox seems to be missing is usb.

Thanks! rick

That workaround (making vmware use an older libX11.so.6) would work, but
it would be nice if someone would try to investigate the problem rather
than working around it.  That someone won't be me, as I'm not a vmware
