Description Tommy McNeely 2003-01-04 20:49:37 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
This is the error I get the first time... (after restarting)

(the window sorta appears then dis-appears)

$ gnome-terminal 
Xlib:  extension "RENDER" missing on display ":0.0".

Gdk-ERROR **: The program 'gnome-terminal' received an X Window System
error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)'.
  (Details: serial 1088 error_code 11 request_code 53 minor_code 0)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error()
function.)
aborting...

(process:30745): Gdk-ERROR (recursed) **: The program 'gnome-terminal'
received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadGC (invalid GC parameter)'.
  (Details: serial 1091 error_code 13 request_code 60 minor_code 0)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error()
function.)
aborting...
Multiple segmentation faults occurred; can't display error dialog


If I try to run it again, the window appears with nothing in it. The
machine starts to get slower and slower as gnome-terminal takes up all
my ram and swap, then the machine becomes unusable (except to push the
reset button cause I am impatient).

I can do "ALT+F2" and use xterm for now :)


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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. startx
2. right-click then select New Terminal (or start gnome-terminal from an XTERM
3. BOOM ?
    

Actual Results:  it crashes or brings the system down

Expected Results:  a terminal window :)
