Description Tim Mann 1999-05-31 00:33:43 UTC
Running the TRS-80 emulator "xtrs" under Enlightenment
causes the window manager to hang.  The mouse still moves
and mouse cursors change, but text cannot be typed into any
window, windows can't be raised or lowered, no menus come
up, if the Gnome panel is on autohide, it can't be pulled
up, etc.  Basically, nothing works.  This happens before
xtrs displays a window.

I can recover by using Ctrl+Alt+F2 to log in again, killing
xtrs, killing Enlightenment (this is necessary), and
starting a new copy of Enlightenment.  It remanages all the
windows and things are OK again.

xtrs runs fine under GNOME + WindowMaker, by the way.

xtrs's X code was originally written a long time ago, and
uses Xlib directly.  It doesn't use any toolkit, not even
Xt.  However, it hasn't killed any other window managers
I've tried it with (and no other xtrs users have reported
problems to me).

You can get a copy of xtrs to try from my TRS-80 page,
I realize that getting xtrs running to reproduce the bug may
be a bit of a pain, so if you have things I could try here
to gather more information, just email me and I'll be glad
to give it a shot.
