I catch is I have been yum updates are run regularly.  It is because
yum runs regularly that I am surprised it is not uptodate.  Other
applications etc are updated regularly by the same process and I assume
are uptodate.
# rpm -qa xorg-x11-serv\*
xorg-x11-server-utils-1.0.1-1.2
xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.0.1-9.fc5.5
