Re: [PATCH] Ugh. The three RRNotify events don't have 'window' at the same offset in the wire structures.

configTimestamp is leftover from RandR 1.1 semantics where config
requests would be ignored if they referred to 'stale' configuration
data. That was required because the config data was full of references
to indices in the specific set of data returned in the last query.

Now that everything uses fairly stable XIDs, I decided that there really
wasn't any reason to check that value anymore, and plenty of reasons
*not* to, like failed configuration when hot-plug detection was
unreliable.
