bug #?

I don't know the answer to that, but we've been in coordination with
Vmware on the X side for the upcoming xserver/mesa deployment this week,
and expect breakage this week, with resolution later this week once the
vmware X driver is rebuilt against the new stuff.  So regardless of the
current state, we would expect it to be working within 1 week, or 2 at
the latest.
