Emacs on Linux crashes in XQueryPointer
Wed Apr 7 19:54:00 GMT 2004
I've got a Debian Sid box running XFree86 (debian package 4.3.0-7).
If I pipe emacs -q from it (emacs 21.3 or CVS, doesn't matter) to my
WinXP box running XWin 188.8.131.52-1, click the window to get rid of the
Emacs intro screen, and select text right to left, Emacs crashes with
X protocol error: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) on protocol request 38
Backtrace shows that this is occuring in XQueryPointer, called from
various points in Emacs. I can reproduce this every time. Running
Emacs in synchronous mode shows the same results. This does not
happen running Emacs to the local Linux X server. This also does not
show up with the Cygwin packaged Emacs 21.2.
Any ideas on what's causing this, or how I could help narrow it down
some more? This makes Emacs extremely unstable displaying on
Cygwin/X for me, since I have to try to avoid using the mouse at all,
or else I might crash Emacs.
