Bernd, All,

(Damn, I was not finished typing my mail, I was to quick at sending
it... Sorry for the noise...)

BTW, that tweak was done by someone called Bernd Kuhls, in commit
862e1221d1c (xorg: Bump xcb-proto & libxcb version to 1.10). Granted,
that was back then in January 2014, now almost 5 years ago, so you're

Yann E. MORIN.
