Description Alan Cox 2002-06-01 00:07:22 UTC
Easiest one I've found showing this is Xnest ...

Gdk-ERROR **: BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)
  serial 164 error_code 11 request_code 45 minor_code 0
Gnome-Message: gnome_execute_async_with_env_fds: returning -1

Gtk-WARNING **: gtk_signal_disconnect_by_data(): could not find handler
containing data (0x81A89C0)
Gdk-ERROR **: BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)
  serial 1780 error_code 11 request_code 45 minor_code 0

It blows up opening a file view - the top level and icons seems fine

Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2002-06-09 14:55:48 UTC
The error there is just "server out of memory" ... most apps don't handle that
error. Well, nearly all apps handle it the same way they handle malloc()
failure, by exiting.

Comment 2 Alan Cox 2002-06-09 22:18:13 UTC
Seems unlikely - the machine had about 512Mb of unused swap at the time.

Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2002-07-07 02:52:38 UTC
Maybe Nautilus somehow tries to create a 30000 by 30000 pixmap or something.

Need to get a backtrace with --sync.

With both sides now running RH8/9 it works
