Attention all Gentoo stable users

Tomáš (scarabeus) and I decided it was time to do another round of stabilizations.

Back in September when we stabilized xorg-server 1.6, upstream was in the process of releasing Xorg 7.5 (which includes xorg-server 1.7, are you still following?). So at that time, we decided to still go ahead with 1.6 and include the bits of 1.7 that were available and compatible.

Now that 7.5 has been fully released, we're doing another mass stabilization... but without xorg-server 1.7. While the server itself is very stable, a few drivers still aren't compatible with it. So we're not going to stabilize it now. So we're just stabilizing utilities and a few drivers, nothing major.

Rest Here

Fixing unperceived errors in my X Windows configuration

Last week I decided to bite the bullet and upgrade X Windows to the latest version available in the main Portage tree. After rebooting, X Windows, GLX and Direct Rendering worked fine as usual. So everything was good. Well, not quite. Although the installation was working properly, there were still some long-standing messages in the X.Org log file that indicated my installation was not configured completely correctly. I had ignored them for too long and resolved to find their causes and eliminate them. Here is what I did.
