gtk2 application segfault with libxi 1.7.7

Since libxi 1.7.7 GTK2 applications crash when certain input devices are plugged in. At least some Wacom tablets and Microsoft game controllers trigger a segmentation fault. Removing lines 224 and 225 from src/XListDev.c:XListInputDevices
if (!s) goto out;
prevents the error from happening. These lines were added in commit 19a9cd60, the only commit from 1.7.6 to 1.7.7.
