Description Bob T. 2004-11-28 22:40:11 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)
Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
Some apps are crashing with weird error messages when used remotely.
Here's what xdvi produces:

X Error of failed request:  BadAtom (invalid Atom parameter)
  Major opcode of failed request:  18 (X_ChangeProperty)
  Atom id in failed request:  0x126
  Serial number of failed request:  179
  Current serial number in output stream:  181

Here's what xv produces:

X Error: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
  Major Opcode:  3

Other apps (e.g., xterm) work OK.  These problems never arose before
updating tp FC3.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xorg-x11-6.8.1-12.FC3.1  openssh-3.9p1-7

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ssh to another computer, forwarding X11
2. start one of the affected applications
3. observe the error message

Actual Results:  Application starts up, then crashes.

Expected Results:  Application works.

Additional info:

Problem seems to be on the local box, not the remote one.  The apps
work fine when not forwarded.

This looks like a dup of bug 134425

Comment 2 Bob T. 2004-11-29 03:08:51 UTC
Hardly recognizable as a dup of 134425 but seems to have same
workaround: using ssh -Y. Why is there nothing in the release notes
about this? And what is the config-file analogue of -Y?  

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 134425 ***
