Package: libxcomposite1
Version: 1:0.3-2
Severity: important
Tags: upstream fixed-upstream patch

libXcomposite calls UnlockDisplay without calling LockDisplay.  This
causes a locking correctness assertion failure with libX11 1.1 and
Xlib/XCB in experimental, and will become RC after the etch release when
libX11 1.1 enters unstable.;a=commitdiff_plain;h=f0a1453f24e29a9badc8f29d81c42c0eb3f67065
