closing a rxvt-unicode terminal window crashes running X session (doesn't matter if it's Gnome, XFCE or LXDE). Get back to GDM login screen.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. from your X session start "urxvt"
2. close urxvt either by typing "exit" or hitting <ctrl-d>
3. X crashes, falling back to GDM login screen
Which version of rxvt-unicode are you using?
it's rxvt-unicode-9.05-1.fc10.i386 from F10.
I just upgraded from F9 to F10 yesterday. F9 worked fine. This issue happens since F10 upgrade.
I have seen this on a machine with a radeon (RV370) card. Disabling AIGLX in xorg.conf helped, so I'd suspect a bug in the ati driver.
Do you have an ati card?
Also there seems to be a bug in libAfterImage so please pull the latest update from updates-testing for both libAfterImage and rxvt-unicode (afaik libAfterImage is not pushed out to the test repo yet).
@Miroslav: yes, it's a FireGL Mobility T2 (aka RV350)
@Andreas: suggested updates fixed it (without disabling AIGLX). Thanks.
Thanks for the feedback. I will push the new updates to stable.
