Description Peter Hutterer 2009-09-27 19:58:28 UTC
Clipping on subpixels is broken in GetPointerEvents and friends. Moving into the upper left corner it is possible to get negative (-1..0) root window coordinates.

    dix: force a minimum of 0 for screen coordinates.
    Currently the root coordinates may fall into ]-1..0] if the subpixel
    remainder is less than 0. Screen coordinates mustn't go below 0, so use
    miPointerSetPosition to cap off the remainder if the coordinates are below
    This is cheating a bit, a more comprehensive solution to deal with subpixels
    correctly when crossing screens is needed. For now, this'll do.
