Some development has been continuing with xdvi(k) after the TL code freeze.
You might want to consider adding those changes to the Debian version.
For the most current version, grab the copy in CVS (on sourceforge), not the
latest numbered release.

Recent changes include:

  o  Added support for XkbBell (so that the bell works again with newer servers)

  o  Fixed bugs in the handling of 32-bit window properties (for source specials)
     on 64-bit platforms.
