Description Need Real Name 2003-01-26 18:50:48 UTC
Description of problem:

when I start up2date over an ssh connection (over internet),
up2ate errors, as follows:

[root@homer root]# up2date
The program 'up2date' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was '202'.
  (Details: serial 379 error_code 202 request_code 155 minor_code 8)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
[root@homer root]# 

stopping iptables on both ends has no effect, 
nor does `xhost +` on my end (not homer)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

[root@homer root]# rpm -q up2date

How reproducible:  every time, across inet.  Dunno how it behaves locally

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results: see above

Expected results:
