This is a bug. Thanks for providing simple reproducible test case!
The problem was that conditionals inside usage-requirements were
ignored --- if you had <os>LINUX:<library>X11 then it was passed directly
to dependents, without any processing.

The fix and test for this bug are in CVS now. Your example appears to work as
well. Can you confirm this?
