SProcShmCreatePixmap() fails to byte-swap 'pid'
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:27 EST
SProcShmCreatePixmap() in file programs/Xserver/Xext/shm.c swaps all the multi-

application and the X server are running in different endianness, calls to
XShmCreatePixmap will fail.

client in a different endianness mode to the server, but if you have and you
try to use XShmCreatePixmap the X server will return an error.
This is the same as:
