Description Peter Hutterer 2012-10-19 01:11:28 UTC
Created attachment 629688 [details]

Description of problem:
Pointer screen crossing for non-xinerama setups is broken.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
The attached config gives a Xorg with two ScreenRecs, independent of each
other. This one uses the dummy driver, please  modified to use the driver of
your choosing.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. xdpyinfo | grep root (note the root window IDs for the two screens)
1. xev -id 0xabc
2. xev -id 0xcde
3. Move the pointer between the screens

Depending on which screen the pointer is on, xev should show the events. At screen crossing, one xev will stop listing events (with LeaveNotify), the other sees an EnterNotify and the motion events.

If using a real driver, the pointer motion can generally be observed as well.
Additional info:
Proposed patch upstream: http://patchwork.freedesktop.org/patch/12259/
This is a regression introduced before the 1.13.0 release.
