Unfortunately, the server version that gets reported in xdpyinfo wasn't
bumped for the 7.1 release.  It's now in git, as of a couple of
days ago, but before that it was

I've got some fixes I'm planning to push to the xserver 1.1 branch, at
which point it would be nice to cherry-pick any other stability fixes,
bump the server version and roll a 1.1.1.
