Looks that way, but no solution is forthcomming. And the partial solutions
that float around work fine (OK, for somewhat peculiar definitions of
"fine") for some, and not at all for others (right now, I'm mostly in the
"others" category ;-).

I remember times of great turmoil and breakage when new compilers or new X
or new GNOME or new OOo were introduced, then things calmed down a bit
(sure, some pieces I used daily sometimes were still quite broken, but
nothing really rock-bottom ground of the system) before calls for "feature
freezes" and such came out. This round feels different (gcc-4.3 betas,
firefox betas, radical reworking of X, ...).
