You can diff this PKGBUILD and the one from xorg-server to make sure they are identical except for the parts that have to do with the extra patch.

I don't really have any ideas why it is not working for you. Maybe your file system that you use for building the package doesn't support the suid bit, so it is lost during unpacking. You don't build on NTFS, do you? Or have some weird mount options in fstab?

None of manipulations of uninstalling\reinstalling are coming to SUID bit defined.
If I install regular xorg-server, it has SUID bit on Xorg.wrap.
But I trace building steps of xorg-server-bug865 and after installing step Xorg.wrap hasn't SUID bit already in pkg/.../lib/xorg-server/*Xorg.wrap (100755 instead of 104755).

xorg-related packaged?
sudo pacman -S xorg-server xorg-xinit xorg-server-utils xterm xf86-input-synaptics

May be my regular user has wrong rights or groups that come to disable inheritance SUID?
useradd -m -g users -G audio,games,lp,optical,power,scanner,storage,video,wheel -s /bin/bash qq

@pethead /usr/lib/xorg-server/Xorg.wrap is already suid on my system.
It seems you messed up something.

You should uninstall xorg-server-bug865, install xorg-server, and reinstall all xorg-related packaged.

After than you can install xorg-server-bug865 and see if everything works fine again.

I found differences between Xorg.wrap in SUID bits.
Regular Xorg.wrap has SUID bit (-rwsr-xr-x as 104755), but Xorg.wrap from xorg-server-bug865 hasn't it (-rwxr-xr-x as 100755). Try to set SUID?
chmod u+s /usr/lib/xorg-server/Xorg.warp
Now startx work fine.
That's full solution of problem.
Need correction in PKGBUILD?

I found some strange solution.
I has build xorg-server-bug865 patched xkbd(865) only (I need it to keyboard switching toggle by ctrl-shift).
After that I unpack package xorg-server-bug865 and compare all content of it with regular xorg-server installed from repo.
I found differences between Xorg.wrap in sizes.
I replace (under root of course) Xorg binary from xorg-server-bug865 with regular /usr/lib/xorg-server/Xorg and wow! Startx works fine and ctrl-shift toggle both.

And now...
Vincent flips the two locks, opening the case. We can't see
what's inside, but a small glow emits from the case. Vincent
just stares at it, transfixed.
We happy?
No answer from the transfixed Vincent.
Vincent looks up at Jules.
We happy?
Closing the case.
We're happy.

P.S. Replacing Xorg.wrap results in a crash of X.

Under root xorg-server-bug865 runs successfully.
But under user it fails.

gpg --recv-keys 5B8A2D50A0ECD0D3

I make
sudo pacman -U xorg-server-bug865-1.18.0-4-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
I answer yes to resolve conflict between xorg-server and xorg-server-bug865 and it installs successfully and I reboot system, then startx can't start and shows an error (I'll see logs). :(

Earlier (april, 2015) xorg-server-bug865 did run normally.

Dr0ID, read previous comments

I have the same problem:

==> Verifying source file signatures with gpg...
xorg-server-1.18.0.tar.bz2 ... FAILED (unknown public key 5B8A2D50A0ECD0D3)
==> ERROR: One or more PGP signatures could not be verified!
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build xorg-server-bug865.

What do you mean by "Install xorg-server and all the updates"?

sudo pacman -Syu `pacman -Qq | grep xorg`
