Record extension no longer works on the last ubuntu (9.04).
There is no error, but no event is recorded and many code based on python-xlib and record extension no longer works.
Try record_demo in examples to see the problem.

    Looks like this is probably an upstream problem :( See https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=20500 - quote "RECORD is heavily broken at the moment and in desperate need of love. The whole event delivery changed under it. How quickly that'll get fixed, I don't
    know."

    Considering this is broken, there is some small discussion if it will ever be fixed. Is there any chance that there's an XInput extension planned/in the works/already done? With that, I could at least hook x events, though in a kludgy/not meant for it way.

    Looks like RECORD is fixed upstream, and the example is working for me again (F12)
