I know I was being unfair.
But Fedora did decide to go over to Xorg,
unlike most of the other distributions,
so I suppose they must share the blame for any problems.

Basically, I was just hoping that if I screamed loudly enough
someone on the Fedora team might hear me
and decide to make sure this patch was applied in FC3.

There does seem to be something wrong with the bug-tracking system
if a patch like this, posted on the bugzilla site,
can be overlooked for 5 or 6 months.
