Description Mildred 2009-05-12 02:35:31 EDT
Description of problem:

When the maximum number of clients are reached on my X server (that is, opening a graphical application normally results in failure looking like:

Maximum number of clients reached
cannot open display: :0.0

The, I can't connect to my VPN any more, the message displayed by nm-applet is:

The VPN connection 'cxname' failed because there were no valid VPN secrets

It should be more explicit.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
NetworkManager 0.7.1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open many X clients (that's not that many)
2. Try to connect to the VPN
3. Look at the error message

Expected results:
A more explicit message. Something like “Close some windows and retry.”

Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 11:39:36 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

More information and reason for this action is here:
Comment 2 Dan Williams 2009-11-06 23:35:23 EST
Not too much we can do about that...  X is required for the UI dialog and if it's not able to show some of the UI elements, if needed, then there's nothing nm-vpnc can do but fail.

Over to X for commentary on max # of clients.
Comment 3 Adam Jackson 2009-11-09 09:33:31 EST
Yeah, what Dan said.

xlsclients doesn't do what you might hope.  It really only prints the names of windows that have had their WM_COMMAND property set.  There's not even a 1:1 mapping between process and display connection.  The best you can hope for is something like:


Which will attempt to walk the list of display connections and deduce the app on the other end.

In general, when I see this, it's a bug in the flash plugin leaking display connections, so I'm calling this CANTFIX on the assumption that flash is to blame.  But really there's nothing to be done when X is out of connections.
