As discovered by Ken, attempting to login to the "awesome" window manager in VL STD 32bit RC4.2 and in 64bit Beta1 fails due to undefined symbol. This corresponds in 64bit to package awesome-3.4.9-x86_64-3vl70.

    Fix reported in 32bit with cairo-1.10.2-i586-7vl70. cairo needed re-compiled with xcb flag.

    Awaiting fix on 64bit.
