Actually, it expanded to:
(%GET-SIGNED-LONG (%GET-PTR *DISPLAY* (/ 0 8)) (/ 1056 8))
which is an important clue.

It turns out that _XPrivDisplay is a "pointer-to-struct" type, which is 
obviously confusing things. I ran the X header files through ffigen 
again with -DXLIB_ILLEGAL_ACCESS, so "Display" is now a valid structure 
type. Things are working better now.

A quick question: the offset to %get-signed-long and friends is in 
bytes; how about the array length in (make-record (:array int 42))?
