Compiling (no error!) and starting a very simple MOTIF program on the Gnome3 desktop, but it fails immediately:


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
X Error of failed request:  BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
  Major opcode of failed request:  19 (X_DeleteProperty)
  Resource id in failed request:  0x0
  Serial number of failed request:  85
  Current serial number in output stream:  89

Motif software used:

motif-devel-2.3.4-3.fc18.x86_64
motif-2.3.4-3.fc18.x86_64



How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compile link the attached source file by "gcc -lXt -lXm xmhallo.c"

Actual results:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
X Error of failed request:  BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
  Major opcode of failed request:  19 (X_DeleteProperty)
  Resource id in failed request:  0x0

Additional info:

Comment 1 Joachim Backes 2012-10-28 07:11:37 UTC
Same (bad) results if using MWM as windowmanager instead of gnome-shell.

Comment 2 Thomas Woerner 2012-10-29 15:00:20 UTC
Please use the proper order of the needed libraries:

gcc -lXm -lXt xmhallo.c

Closing as not a bug.
