Haha. Xorg fixes CVE-2020-25712.
This exposes a bug in libcaribou, used by the Cinnamon on-screen keyboard. It crashes the parent process when "ē" is pressed.
In current versions of Cinnamon, this kills cinnamon-screensaver, unlocking the screen. Also caribou is unmaintained (Gnome used to be the upstream, but doesn't make use of the library anymore).
(This was originally linked from a recent post that I now can't find anymore in my timeline...)
