Last modified: 2018-04-11 10:22:43 EDT
Description of problem:
Abort (or sometimes just a X error) when retrieving / displaying extension info,
specifically XFree86-Misc by the looks of it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xdpyinfo -ext all
xdpyinfo -ext XFree86-Misc
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run either of the above two commands
2. Watch and be disappointed
3. ... profit?
Some extension-specific detail in the output.
Attaching the output of the two commands in a moment (assuming I remember :o)).

Output of "xdpyinfo -ext all"

Output of "xdpyinfo -ext XFree86-Misc"
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.
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
Fixed in xorg-x11-utils 7.3-3.fc9.
