It is a great patch. I am using Shift + Alt for keyboard layout switching, with this patch I am able to use other keyboard shortcuts such as Shift + Alt + 1. It works, but it also switches keyboard layout with any combo. Any workaround?

Ok, it seems i've fixed the patch. You have to reinstall the package, because i didn't bump the version (to follow Arch upstream).

Update to 1.19.1 broke the patch. NumLock/CapsLock/ScrollLock don't work.

Can not build on the latest system. harfbuzz seems to be out of sync.

The latest update (to 1.19) breaks dependencies, and manual intervention is required:

Step 1: Remove xorg-server-bug865 and all packages depending on it. In my case:
pacman -R xorg-server-bug865 hsetroot nvidia-utils lib32-nvidia-utils nvidia nvidia-ck-ivybridge

Step 2: Upgrade all packages that xorg-server depends on:
pacman -Syu

Step 3: Reinstall xorg-server and all packages depending on it. In my case:
pacman -S xorg-server hsetroot nvidia-utils lib32-nvidia-utils nvidia nvidia-ck-ivybridge

Step 4: At this point, you use upstream xorg-server. Install the xorg-server-bug865 package from AUR as you usually do.

Since 2004 it still even ain't in the mainstream

Just started rebuilding xorg-server myself, but accidentally stumbled upon this package.
So glad that did not have to go through the hassle.
Thanks, kyak.

This patch ought to be merged into the Extra btw, since freedesktop people refuse to fix their own fumble.
