Thanks, I wasn't aware of this. The patch we're dealing with here is
basically a (small) subset of David Reveman's patch. I'll see if I can
find the time to update the gradient part of the patch next weekend and
port it to xcb.

I would think so, too. The nice thing here is that we are guaranteed
that gradients are handled in the server by software, so we don't have
to worry about drivers implementing them incorrectly. And if we ever
decide to enable hardware acceleration for gradients, as Michel Dänzer
suggested in , driver maintainers will be instantly aware of the
issue, because most (all?) drivers will currently crash if the source's
pDrawable is NULL.
