MDKA-2007:049 : x11-server-xgl

Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

The DPMS X server extension is responsible for managing the pwoer for
the display. It turns the display off (or puts it in standby mode)
after a programmed time of inactivity, however some applications can
disable DPMS' timers while running (such as a video player).

When using Xgl, the timers of the underlying servers were not
properly set, so if an application attempted to disable DPMS, it
would still be active. This update fixes the problem by forcing Xgl
to always configure the timers in the underlying server.
