the queue size is set at build time, not run time. in lenny, it's 4k;
in squeeze, it's 16k (just as it was in plain Xlib in etch and before).
in order to change the queue size in the lenny version, change the size
of the queue array in struct _xcb_out.
do you have a good test case for this bug that doesn't involve java
code? how big is the performance difference between
1) etch xlib
2) lenny xlib
3) lenny xlib with 16k buffer
4) squeeze xlib
all talking to the same server?
