I'm just compiling 48633. It was certainly not working at about 2pm when
I wrote the test code (I did an update about 1pm - not sure which
version that was at). Are you running xorg.x11 or xfree86 x11? It
shouldn't make a difference, but you never know!

I had tried it both ways and then had a friend check it in .NET.

I actually came across this as I have a test piece of code which was
written yonks ago. I remember it working earlier in the year and wanted
to demo it to someone who thought that .NET was only ever going to be
viable under Win32 (you know the sort). I tested it to ensure that it
worked and that I wasn't going to have egg on my face.

Which distro, compiler, X11 server etc did you compile it up using?
