How is Audiograbber affected?

The problem is a X11 security fix, which disallows
width or height of Pixmaps to be > 32768.

The goal of the original security fix is to avoid integer overflows
in multiplication of width and height.

(The fix is in the lines of:
	if ((width > 32768) || (height > 32768=))

I already mail xorg_security at with this problem ... 

Should I put effort in to get it fixed better?

Ciao, Marcus
