I did some basic testing, ran through all of x11perf and did some  
drawing with xgc. It all seems to work ok, no crashes everything looks  
correct (I did watch most of the x11perf run). This is on a MacBook  
Pro, 2GHz Intel Core Duo (ie 32 bit) with 2 GB mem.

I bet there's some more exoteric functions I have yet to try though.
