Just to try to close this:
I have not seen my X server exit with a Clipboard Error in at least a
couple of weeks. I can't say what was causing the problem. My
working theory was that somehow TeamViewer (remote control software)
was causing the problem. However, I have been doing extensive remote
access the last week and have not had a single X server crash!
I did make a few changes after the crashes became more frequent:
1. I had originally some problems with ~/.startxwinrc, and had copied
the default from \etc\X11\xinit\startxwinrc in order to keep the extra
window from popping up when X server was started. I have since been
able to reduce ~/.startxwinrc to simply:
For some reason, at home I additionally have to explicitly call "xrdb"
in my ~/.startxwinrc, but not at work. I do not know why, or what's
2. I have been using the 2.x beta releases of the Cygwin library. In
the process, I have removed my local /etc/passwd and /etc/groups
files, letting Cygwin get the info from Windows directly.
I can't say whether either of these two actions has stopped the
crashes. But they have stopped.
