Please report this to http://bugs.xfree86.org and include a URL here to the
upstream bug report. Once it is approved by Ivan Pascal and committed to
upstream source, I'll apply the necessary fixes to our Red Hat Linux XFree86

as WORKSFORME. I almost missed the report entirely. Reopening...)
Awaiting upstream URL, setting to NEEDINFO state.
I close it because the provided patch solve the problem. Red Hat can use it on
