xorg regression in -current


My screen setup is as follows:
Code:
xrandr --output DVI-I-1 --auto
xrandr --output DVI-I-2 --right-of DVI-I-1 --rotate left --auto
ie. two screens side by side, one rotated left.

With xorg from -current, mouse is jailed to only the first 1080 lines of the DVI-I-2 screen and I'm unable to access the whole of the second screen. Downgrading to x/ packages from 14.0 fixed the issue.

Did this problem occur with the latest xorg-server-1.13.2-x86_64-2.txz package or with the earlier xorg-server-1.13.2-x86_64-1.txz package or both?

It happens on -2. As for -1 I haven't tested it (in fact, in the meantime, I broke my system (probably removed too many packages) so I'll have to fix it first).

Rule of thumb: make a full install before requesting help using the word "regression" in the title or at least write possible regression

And so I've found the culprit, and it's this patch: http://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackwa...ng.fix.diff.gz

I'd like to think that after so many years on -current I can distinguish between regressions and me breaking something.

Yeah - I was afraid it would be that. That patch is good for me for stopping the mouse from being jailed when using panning.
