Upstream says this is a X problem, so reassigning to xorg-x11 for comments.
Start of upstream thread is at

Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2005-05-24 13:32:39 UTC
Please report this problem to X.Org at http://bugs.freedesktop.org, as
this issue will require upstream do review it, and make considerations
as to what the most correct fix is.  I suspect this will be in Ivan and
Sergey's department - the experts in this area of X.

Once you've filed your bug report to X.Org, if you paste the new
bug URL here, Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the
centralized X.Org bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes that
become available for consideration in future updates.

Setting status to "NEEDINFO", awaiting X.Org bug URL for tracking.
