Proposed patch

rpmlint from Fedora ran on the xcb-utils package suggests this:

xcb-util.i386: W: shared-lib-calls-exit /usr/lib/libxcb-aux.so.0.0.0 exit@GLIBC_2.0
This library package calls exit() or _exit(), probably in a non-fork()
context. Doing so from a library is strongly discouraged - when a library
function calls exit(), it prevents the calling program from handling the
error, reporting it to the user, closing files properly, and cleaning up any
state that the program has. It is preferred for the library to return an
actual error code and let the calling program decide how to handle the

Perhaps the intention was to *return* something, and perhaps non-zero?

Thanks for the report. I've fixed this (a different way) in c9796f2.
