That was a bug.  It's the sort of bug you have to expect to deal with
when you're trying to build your own distribution and trying to pick and
choose modules.

If you don't want to deal with those sorts of integration issues, you
should just be using a X.Org release, which is what we put out that says
"we believe all of these versions should work well together."  Finding
that was awfully easy -- 3 clicks from the front page to the ftp site.

You want more hand-holding than that?  Sorry.
