gnome-session is one of the few programs which uses the Xau* functions.
In our monolithic xorg-x11-6.8, libX11 is statically linked to libXau,
but with the modular X11 7.0, all libraries are dynamically built and
linked, hence the function is now in libXau6.
I've already built gnome-session-2.14.0 with modular X11; it's already
on the FTP site, and will be installable with setup.exe when I next
update the server.
