Description Andrew Overholt 2007-03-08 09:15:49 EST
Description of problem:
gnome-terminal crashes for me but not for root.  This just started happening
after updating to rawhide yesterday.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click gnome-terminal icon
Actual results:
Window very briefly shows up and then goes away.

Expected results:
A beautiful gnome-terminal window.

Additional info:
I installed xterm and if I launch gnome-terminal from there, I get:

The program 'gnome-terminal' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
  (Details: serial 936 error_code 8 request_code 72 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.)

I can't get anything meaningful out of gdb but perhaps I'm missing some debug
packages or something.
Comment 1 Andrew Overholt 2007-03-08 12:16:00 EST
This seems to be independent of all gnome-terminal settings (in gconf).  The
variable that makes it fail seems to be compiz.  When I have desktop effects
enabled, it fails and when I don't, it doesn't fail.

I will file upstream and close here when I have done so.
