The point of --sync doing it under a debugger and giving us a
backtrace :-)

If you could attach 'xdpyinfo' output that might be useful as well.

The problem here is *presumably* that the Xlib fallback tiling code is
trying to run when the source and destination drawables are of different
depths (or different screens?) but there is supposed to be code in
there to prevent that.
