remote Mathematica client does not work properly in Cygwin/X (pointer bug?)
Tue Jun 15 03:15:00 GMT 2004
I'm using the latest Cygwin/X for Windows XP.
I use xinit to start X server on my local computer,
then connect to a remote linux computer by 'ssh -X'.
Many clients work properly, i.e. xemacs, mozilla, etc.
However, the pointer does not work good when I start
Mathematica(V5) on the remote linux computer.
The error information is,
X Error of failed request: BadWindow (invalid Window
Major opcode of failed request: 38 (X_QueryPointer)
Resource id in failed request: 0x3a
Serial number of failed request: 23406
Current serial number in output stream: 23406
As long as I move my pointer to any Mathematica
window, that error message will appear on the window
where the Mathematica is started.
The Mathematica can not recognize 'Shift-Enter' 2-key
Usually, the Cygwin/X crashes after I use Mathematica
for a long time.
I don't know if somebody else has also encountered
this kind of problem.
Please help to solve this problem.
