System: NetBSD 3.99.8 NetBSD 3.99.8 (NELLY) #1: Sun Sep 4 11:39:46 CEST 2005 sparc64
Architecture: sparc64
Machine: sparc64

The tool sysutils/xuvmstat (from pkgsrc) can not open a display on a
X server running on sparc64 with ffb frame buffer:

X Error of failed request:  BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
  Major opcode of failed request:  1 (X_CreateWindow)
  Serial number of failed request:  7
  Current serial number in output stream:  14

The same binary works when using -display on another machine (with different
server). An i386 binary trying to use the sparc64 display fails the same
way, so it's a server issue.
