I'd suggest we see if we can get someone from X.org involved in the
discussion. While this wouldn't result in a fix today it would
certainly let us get cooperation which is likely to result in a better
fix. We might have to wait half a year for the full fix to get out
there but we can always provide a short term work around and see if we
can't run-time detect the improved correct way of doing it.
