i didn't know that is an old timer bug. you didn't add any link to the report. I think is ok to have it

As a matter of a fact, binary packages of Xorg with this patch are available at least for Gentoo and Ubuntu (and shared by their users). I don't know what makes you think that Arch users wouldn't be interested. After all, i have to apply this patch with every xorg update - and i've been doing this for several years now (by the way, you can guess that the original patch dated back from 2007 needed to be adapted to the latest xorg version) - so why not save some time for fellow Arch users?

No, i didn't try to report it to include into xorg-server package.

This bug is almost 8 years old, and the patch doesn't seem to be accepted upstream (read https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=865).

So i figured i'm on my own - especially knowing that "Arch keeps patching to a minimum, thus avoiding problems that upstream are unable to review".

Moreover, i noticed there are other patched versions of xorg-server here on AUR (fixing other freaking bugs).
Anyway, if this package insults you, feel free to remove it - i don't know how anyway :)

since when we are pushing new builds into aur just to fix a freaking bug?

did you even tried to report a bug in our tracker to include this fix into our package?
