Description Per Steinar Iversen 2004-11-18 09:22:05 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
Open a remote xterm through ssh like this:

$ ssh -X -f <server> xterm

Then a cut and paste from the remote window to a local one crashes the
remote xterm.
Pasting from a local to a remote xterm does not seem to work.
Cut and paste works well between different remote xterms on the same

A typical error message received:

# xterm:  warning, error event received:
X Error of failed request:  BadAtom (invalid Atom parameter)
  Major opcode of failed request:  18 (X_ChangeProperty)
  Atom id in failed request:  0x181
  Serial number of failed request:  174
  Current serial number in output stream:  176

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open remote xterm with: ssh -X -f <server> xterm
2. Attempts to cut and paste ends with remote xterm crash

Actual Results:  Xterm dies.

Expected Results:  The cut and paste operations should have worked.

Additional info:

This fails when the remote machines are FC3 and also AS3. I am not
really sure if this is a metacity bug or a gnome bug.
