Description of problem:
When running emacs in an X window under Fedora Core 3, it frequently crashes with the message:
X protocol error: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) on protocol request 25
... or something similar.
This is not limited to the local machine only; for example, if I ssh into a machine running Fedora Core 2 and run emacs, it has the same behaviour. (Obviously, if I disable X forwarding and/or use the -nw option, this doesn't happen, but then emacs is crippled.)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run emacs in an X window on a stock Fedora Core 3 system.
2. Do a bunch of editing.
Actual Results: Sooner or later, it will crash. This applies even if it is an emacs from another machine.
This is covered in the Fedora Core 3 release notes.
Very similar to bug #138617
