Re: [Vala] x11.vapi is broken

mmh, I cannot reproduce it now :/

But with this test case I get really weird errors:

pancake flubox:~$ cat test.vala
using X;

void main() {
       var food = X.Drawable();

pancake flubox:~$ valac test.vala  --pkg x11
test.vala:4.6-4.24: warning: local variable `food' declared but never used
       var food = X.Drawable();

/home/pancake/test.vala.c: In function ‘_main’:
/home/pancake/test.vala.c:22: error: too few arguments to function ‘memset’

pancake flubox:~$

It is trying to call memset with only two arguments:

       food = memset (0, sizeof (Drawable));

if should be memset(&food, 0, sizeof (Drawable));

this is only happening with the X11 Drawable struct, maybe the problem is that you can define empty structures in vapi, but cannot in vala. So maybe there's soemthing wrong in the codegen
module that handles empty structures incorrectly (dont know, just guessing).

using Gdk and X11 packages results in a compilation error:

x11.vapi:284.27-284.28: error: The type name `ID' could not be found
        public struct Drawable : ID

patch is attached. But probably Vala should priorize the name resolution if the type is defined inside the same namespace (this solution will be better, but will require a patch in vala compiler)

This is only broken in git. 0.7.9 is ok
