Public bug reported:

libx11 suffers from 32-bit sequence wraparound for programs that make a
large number of calls to the server. (See: https://lists.x.org/archives
/xorg-devel/2013-October/038370.html )

The Freedesktop bug is here:
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=71338

This was fixed with this commit:
https://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/lib/libX11/commit/?id=a72d2d06c002b644b7040a0a9936c8525e092ba8

This fix requires libxcb >= 1.11.1 for the 64-bit sequence API. Xenial
and higher ship libxcb 1.11.1.

Can this patch be pulled into the Ubuntu package?
