I'm a little bit confused what problems remain, so I'll tell you my results
and you can tell me if you agree
1.5.3-3 +bs server segfault
1.5.3-4 +bs ok (redrawing of area under menus is messed up)
1.5.3-3 +bs root segfault
1.5.3-4 +bs root segfault
1.5.3-4 root segfault
fixed by adding XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS
