Nope, it's using Xorg 6.9; do I have to do something special to get 7.0?
I guess I did an apt-get upgrade about a week (or so) ago.

xlibmesa-dri                                    install
xlibmesa-gl                                     install
xlibs                                           install
xlibs-data                                      install

I guess that just overwrites the Mesa libGL?  I'll try that.
