XGetSelectionOwner bug in emacs-20.7

This is a bug report for emacs-20.7.  According to the Inter-client
communication conventions manual (ICCCM, version 2.0),
  After calling \code{XSetSelectionOwner}, selection ownership must be
  verified by calling \code{XGetSelectionOwner}.
Violating this rule could cause the user to be misled about which
window owns the selection.  The routine x_own_selection (from
src/xselect.c) violates the rule: it doesn't call XGetSelectionOwner.

Do you agree that this is a bug?
