Generally, many/most distros have been reluctant to update a single package from the set generated from the X "tarball from hell", resulting in you getting every package for a single fix in one program...
Aha, that's the reason why the urmpmi (or yum, apt-get...) upgrades for some
small X11 bugfix always re-download clearly unrelated things, like font
packages. I had long wondered why the distros I use (Mandriva and various
RHEL-derivatives) are so wasteful.
