* #41124: [from 1.9.x] Another crash in GLX/DRI2 when resizing a window
* #41211: [from 1.10.x] A DRI2 crash regression
  * A workaround is ready.  Please get this merged to master, so it can be merged to stable.
* #42008: Double free using intel drivers
  * Fix is ready.  Please get this merged to master, so it can be merged to stable.
* #42219: [from 1.10.x] Composite bug sometimes shows empty tooltips

Some additional known issues from the 1.12 tracker would be considered for
1.11 if a fix becomes available:

* #11053: Buffer overflow in fbCopyArea()
  * Has a patch, ajax thinks the patch is wrong
* #23938: [from 1.6.x] keys occasionally get stuck
* #24094: CTRL-ALT-F1 doesn't switch to VT1 (provides garbage input to terminal instead)
  * XKB weirdness.  This looks diagnosed, so let's get a patch tested.

* #27804: Enter/Leave event woes with multiple master devices
* #31501: [from 1.8.x] crash accessing font info with xfs in fontpath

  * A possible fix is discussed, but Keith didn't like it.

  * Patch is provided in the bug report and needs review
