Thank you very much for working on the fix.

> Replaying XI event without XI does not work - really dunno if this is necessary to implement.... who records on an XI device and then replay on a non XI device?


At least I do. In my not yet published xnee-based project for recording/replaying macros, recorded files supposed to be portable. At this moment, recorded xnee XI log is not portable at all - if a device (identified by its ID) is not present, cnee will just crash, even if the actual device is still present (BTW, device name is more reliable way to check a presence device and discover its current ID). There is bug 36663 for this problem, but its about fixing a crash, not making XI logs portable. At this moment I use hackish preprocessing script to convert XI events to X events on the fly. This is awkward and should not be necessary in my opinion.

I think it makes sense to record XI events in order to preserve as much useful information as possible (for example, for per device statistics or for more post-filtering possibilities) and be able to replay recorded events with --force-core-replay no matter what XI devices are present or what their IDs are. Without this option, recorded XI logs may be useless even on the same computer just because some IDs changed or some devices were removed.

Non committed code works fine when recording
