Xephyr 1.6.3 -parent argument broken (works in 1.4.2)

I have an application that need to use Xephyr -parent argument to embed
it into the window created by the application. It was working fine when
I am using 1.4.2 (debian lenny), but recently I upgrade to 1.6.3
(squeeze) and it no longer works. the window does not get embed, and it
even looks screwy. Downgrade only xserver-xephyr package to 1.4.2 works

I tried both 1.6.3 and no luck. haven't try 1.6.99 yet. Do
you think it's necessary to try 1.6.99 (I doubt it because I don't see
any commits related to Xephyr in git)

Please help. Thanks.
