Thank you so much for the quick help!
1.2.15 is fine, I wanted to confirm if this old bug was still present
or fixed. I don't have interest in testing other versions of SDL in
principle. BTW, maybe you can attach the files (code + makefile) to
allow other people to test more easily?
Other than that, what I understand from the original reporter is that
the problem is precisely the interaction between SDL and the local X
server, maybe it was an issue with the GPU so it would be difficult to
reproduce. If other people can test with a local X display on PowerPC
please do -- at least so it can be determined whether it works in some
machines, to rule out if it's a general problem of powerpc or not.
