Please do the following:

* Try to narrow down exactly which version of the Xorg packages works and
  which does not.  Debian package versions would help; if you figure out which
  specific package and feel up to doing a git bisect on the source and finding
  the specific commit, that would help the developers fix the problem more

* Report a bug against the appropriate package in the Debian bug-tracking
  system, and ideally also in the upstream BTS at, so
  that this issue doesn't get lost.

Thank you.
