There's an easier workaround than recompiling the X server, posted on the Xephem yahoo group: -- may require group membership to read, but it says:

That deb works for me too. I don't understand why the 3.7.4 deb works on Lucid when the 3.7.4 I compiled myself doesn't work, or why it would make a difference if the bug is really in the X server. But it might help as a temporary workaround for those who don't want to recompile X.
