Description Mohd Izhar Firdaus Ismail 2007-03-09 13:42:22 UTC
Description of problem:
Gnome-terminal crashes with X Window System invalid parameter attributes error 

launching it from xterm gives this output

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 1093 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.)

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

How reproducible:
very frequently

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run compiz/beryl
2. start gnome-terminal
Actual results:

Expected results:

I'm seeing the same on x86_64, there's no stack available when you run it
through gdb so I can't provide additional information to help track it down.

there's a lot of errors like so:

(gnome-terminal:7433): Vte-WARNING **: Can not find appropiate font for characte
r U+ac10.

If you repeatedly attempt to start up gnome-terminal from the menu it will
eventually start but exit without starting bug-buddy at rather random intervals.

A "me too" here.

This didn't seem to happen when I played with Compiz last week. Was there
anything significant between then and now in gnome-terminal or Compiz that may
be causing this?

Add to this a (possible) related that windows (not all of them, but most) open
with the title (drag) bar off-screen.  Once dragged below the panel they can't
be moved above it.  (Not checked with beryl, but if compiz is enabled this happens.)
