Check your X-window libraries that they are the corect one for FreeBSD.
Only idea that i have. It can't come from the system libraries, they
should only use correct system calls. The c-compiler also doesn't 
generate system calls himself, so the only possibility to get wrong
system calls into the binary is from the libraries that are getting linked
from the AcceleratedX libraries.
I assume that they have own X Libraries delivered with the Server ?
