It's git (although the version in xdpyinfo still says 70000000 :\ ).  And 
I'm guessing it might be the latter, though I can't figure out why it 
would have regressed.  The code that snippet is from used to work with 
older versions of XF86, but since I upgraded to suse 10.1 (which came 6.9) it's stopped working.

Nope, no error messages in there of any sort.
