Although libxcb can yield dramatic improvements in speed,
memory footprint, and responsiveness, and will probably
become the default Xlib for, it is
still experimental software.  Some broken callers will abort()
on locking assertion failures.  As a temporary workaround, set
LIBXCB_ALLOW_SLOPPY_LOCK in your environment to skip the abort().
This may result in noisy stacktrace printing.

is this still true?
