This is the first time I have ever heard of such an error.
Could you please elaborate on where you recieve this error? Is it a
popup window? If so, please include the full text. Is it in
/tmp/XWinrl.log or /tmp/XWin.log? If so, please include the full text
of that file. Is it at a command prompt? If so, which program
generated the error and what was its text?
With more info we may be able to help.
