Does this get fixed by bumping libxcb's buffer size to 16k instead of 4?


I didn't know that was possible. After reading
 http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/xcb/2008-September/003906.html  it seems that setting the env variable
LIBXCB_QUEUE_BUFFER_SIZE makes it possible, but according to http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/xcb/2008-September/003905.html the default value is already xcb_queue_buffer_size=16384. So
- are these patches available in lenny or squeeze versions of libxcb1 in Debian?
- if they are, it seems that 16384 doesn't improve it, as I've already tested lenny and squeeze versions of libxcb1. Can you suggest any other value to test?

or maybe I'm wrong and there's another known way to do what you suggest. In that case, please, I need you to teach me how to do it to test this bug.
