I'll happily file this upstream, but I have no way to verify this isn't somehow
rawhide-specific at this point.

Yes, can easily reproduce.
Comment 5 Adam Jackson 2008-04-21 16:03:13 EDT
Yeah, it'll do that.  Most of the XFree86-Misc stuff was ripped out as part of
the new input world order.  xdpyinfo should just catch errors from those and
ignore them.

Fixed in xorg-x11-utils 7.3-3.fc9.
