Proable 7.2.1 issues
TFP issues: bug #8991 holds a patch required for TFP to work. DanielStone needs to defer to others on this one, so it's not getting in if someone else doesn't merge it. MichelDaenzer thinks this or another fix for the TFP regression should go in, unless someone can suggest a reasonable workaround for TFP users.
- Not exactly specific to 7.2, but a long standing dlloader issue that would be nice to take care of for 7.2: dlloader handles unresolved functions very ungracefully; the X server just aborts on an attempt to call an unresolved function, the symptoms are generally described as a 'freeze'. Handling SIGABRT or whichever signal is involved in that situation might go a long way to deal with this.
- i965 is a non-starter: kem is looking into this.
