xserv 4.3.0-44 loses information over ssh - cygcheck.out [0/1]
Thu Feb 5 16:53:00 GMT 2004
I have cygwin 1.5.7/xfree-xserv 4.3.0-44. I run clients on a remote
Linux box, and tunnel X over ssh to display them on one of two Windows
boxes: one Win2K, with PuTTY; and one WinXP, with cygwin/OpenSSH. I
start my X servers in multiwindow mode:
XWin.exe -multiwindow -clipboard -dpi 100
Now on both Windows boxes, I have the same three kinds of intermittent
- The window "Close" button (top right) or Close command (from the
taskbar) only works on about half of my managed X windows. On the rest,
it has no effect at all. I have use the application menus instead to
close the window, i.e. File | Quit.
- "Maximize" works correctly on only about a quarter of my managed
windows. On the rest, Windows maximizes the window, but the newly added
area never gets redrawn, and the mouse cursor can't go there. X doesn't
seem to know about the new area in the maximized window. I can,
however, expand the size of the window by dragging the window borders,
even up to about the size of the whole screen, and then the new area is
redrawn and usable.
- About half of all managed windows show the correct window title, e.g.
"KMail". On the rest, I get the generic title "Cygwin/X X".
The 2nd and 3rd problems are visible in the screenshot of a maximized X
Output of cygcheck -svr (from the Win2K/PuTTY box) is attached. Any
help would be appreciated, and I'd be glad to help troubleshoot.
