Description Lonni J Friedman 2006-10-24 18:04:48 EDT
Description of problem: 
Attempts to run gnome-terminal in an X server that is using Xinerama + composite
results in gnome-terminal crashing:
The program 'gnome-terminal' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)'.
(Details: serial 105 error_code 2 request_code 78 minor_code 0)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
0) Setup xorg.conf to use Xinerama
1) Attempt to run gnome-terminal
Actual results:
gnome-terminal crashes immediately

Expected results:
gnome-terminal runs

Additional info:
This is known Xorg bug 6501 (freedesktop.org bugzilla)
