The following packages have been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

*** xorg-server-1.9.3-2
*** xorg-server-dmx-1.9.3-2

These packages contain XWin and the other X.Org X11 servers.

In addition to upstream fixes, this contains the following cygwin-specific
changes since 1.9.3-1:

* Fix a crash which occurred using indirect rendering with some OpenGL
applications e.g. ParaView, by synchronizing the indirect function dispatch
table offsets with the current Mesa (7.8).  The need for this synchronization
is an unfortunate consequence of the way we currently work around some linkage
problems with Mesa due to PE/COFF limitations.
