Description Peter Hutterer 2010-05-18 00:40:17 UTC
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):

How reproducible:
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)
