xorg - Xnest

Hello people,
I've built LFS with the linux-libc-headers. XFree86-4.4.0 (which 
I used to use) won't build against these headers but xorg-6.8.1 will. 
However, xorg has an annoying bug whenever I build it. When I log in as 
root in a nested window, if I open two applications (eg nautilus and a 
terminal) I have trouble getting the one from behind to come to the 
front. Normally I can just click on the bit that's showing and it comes 
to the front. But not with xorg. Or rather, not when I compile xorg. It 
works fine in Slackware 10 which uses xorg-6.7.0 so it must be possible. 
I must be doing something wrong. This is the host.def I use to compile xorg
