Description of problem:
xinput --list-props <device> fails with BadAtom on 64 bit machines due to an invalid memory access. The size of properties is different on 32/64 bit, hence the read goes past the memory boundary
Upstream bug: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=27657, already committed, can be back-ported easily.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xinput --list-props "<device id or name>"
In my case it failed on Wacom devices, not on my USB mouse (probably due to the number of atoms being different on the two)
