Problems using XWin with remote desktop with latest version
Mon Sep 20 18:53:00 GMT 2010
I have the following batch file to start xwin:
SET RUN=%CYGWIN_ROOT%\bin\run -p /usr/bin
%RUN% XWin -multiwindow -clipboard -silent-dup-error
IF EXIST %CYGWIN_ROOT%\bin\urxvtd-X.exe %RUN% %CYGWIN_ROOT%\bin\urxvtd-X.exe
This works fine (and has been for a while >year).
Occasionally, I have to connect to my machine via windows remote desktop.
I've also been doing this for a while.
With the latest version of x-windows; however, when I do so XWin.exe seg faults.
I then kill the urxvtd-X.exe process, re-run my batch script, and all is well within the remote desktop session.
Then I close the remote desktop session, and when I get back to my machine the x-windows-based command windows are no longer functional. I close down Xwin.exe (and urxvtd-X.exe), restart them, and I'm ok again.
Any ideas as to what has changed to cause these new issues,
(a) XWin.exe seg fault due to remote desktop connection (sorry, I don't have the seg fault info)
(b) X-windows based command windows, (i.e., windows started with: urxvtc -g 80x42 -e /bin/bash -l -i) no longer display correctly when I disconnect the remote desktop session - I have to 're-start' xwin.exe (and urxvtd-X.exe) processes.
