Does Xnest work, in Gentoo especially?

Does your Xnest work? Mine doesn't. Could you test it?
Xnest is included in xorg-server so everyone has it (at least in

$ Xnest :1

If it prints some 800x600 window, then it runs. You can kill it.
In my case, it crashes immediately, printing:
[dix] Could not init font path element /usr/share/fonts/TTF/, removing from list!
[dix] Could not init font path element /usr/share/fonts/OTF, removing from list!
Couldn't get keyboard.
Xnest: xcb_io.c:452: _XReply: Assertion `!dpy->xcb->reply_data' failed.
(The first two lines are not critical.)

I think it worked for <= 1.5.x. Since I've installed 1.7.6, it crashes.
1.8.x series are almost the same in Xnest, and I don't have time to
install 1.9.x now.

I've reported the bug to upstream, but little has progressed:
(I may had to report it to Gentoo.)

Xephyr is another nested X server, but it doesn't allow keyboard
configuration from hal, so useless for me. Xnest is important for me
to test things.

Thanks beforehand.

Chinese government at least twice.
