Description of problem:

The error given is (italian F8 version):
boincmgr: xcb_xlib.c:41: xcb_xlib_lock: Asserzione `!c->xlib.lock' fallita.
Steps to Reproduce:

They say it's a Fedora problem :)
In fact with Fedora Core 6 I user before, it was running out of the box.
PS: Sorry if I posted the bug in wrong page, I'm just a learning-user of GNU/Linux
