I think this update breaks XWin for me.  When starting any client (gvim,
emacs-X11), I get a broken window, sometimes empty, sometimes partially
filled.  I cannot click the content, the click just goes through to the
window below, which brings the bottom window up.  If I focus the broken
window (through the taskbar), I seem to be able to interact with the
program, e.g. after inserting something in gvim using the keyboard, the
title reflects this through the modified flag ('+').  But again, the
content stays empty.

If I run XWin without multiwindow, the program (gvim or emacs) renders
just fine in the XWin window.

If I revert back to 1.17.1-4, multiwindow works just fine as well.
