Gimp is unusable with this version of libX11.
Gimp people confirmed this patch on IRC.
Here is my ebuild.

x11-team, status?

I get more and more complaints about this, please either patch it or mask this version of libX11. In the current state it makes a whole bunch of apps completely unusable.
Comment 5 Doug Goldstein (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-06-15 21:50:33 UTC
The patch is necessary and proper based on input from upstream and other distros. Also it's necessary to fix an issue that an application that has a wide user base is using. As such this is really a QA issue, I'm going to step in and fix this bug with the supplied patch, since the patch is from upstream.

Fixed in libX11-1.1.2-r1
