Description Thomas Quinn 1999-10-02 20:26:52 EDT
If emacs loses its connection to the X server, either by
shutting down the server or giving the emacs window a
"XKillClient", it will dump core.  This occurs because emacs
tries to clean up, but ends up overflowing the communication
buffer to the X server.  I will submit a sample patch.
