All packages using the x11 library (e.g. slim, xterm, ...)
are segfaulting because of segfaults from libx11 after upgrading
to kernel 3.9 and the corresponding nvidia propretiary driver 319.

Disabling xinerama or using kernel 3.8 and nvidia 313 fixes this bug.

Example output:
xterm[1378]: segfault at 8 ip 00007fb1c0e09080 sp 00007fff3f994c08 error 4 in[7fb1c0dd8000+133000]

Steps to reproduce:
Upgrade to newest kernel and nvidia driver, enable xinerama in xorg.conf.

I don't think we will be able to fix this bug, since it's probably generated by the closed source nvidia driver. So please report it to the nvidia devs.
