Comment 91 for bug 86103

 Josh and I just proposed a set of changes to XCB and Xlib/XCB which,
among other things, should address all the outstanding assertion
failures and synchronization problems that we know of. Could anyone
experiencing this bug please build XCB and Xlib with the patches found
at and

Josh can you or anyone else please post instructions on building xcb and xlib with these patches. I looked at the link, but it is not clear to me what has to be done. I am bit of a newbee.
 I need to solve this problem, but I do not know how to build these libs and none of the proposed workarounds work for me.
