    @Pikestaff: Could you give us an update after a month of use?

    I've tried everything available on WinXP, OSX & Linux, (on more than one machine) & in the end unreliability rules. To the point that I doubt I'd waste my time with the game again.

    Sure thing. I've played a couple "test games" already from start to finish without issue, but I will keep you updated.

    The true workaround is to export XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1 before running smacpack. No need for Xephyr, no need to disable Composite.
