I tried to do some debugging. It doesn't do it every time, but it seems more
prone to it, when it loses focus while something is selected. As always,
when I compile with debug symbols, it doesn't happen (at least that often).

The X server thinks it has made and illegal request, this is the output from
the rxvt's handle X error -function:

rxvt: XError: Request: 18 . 0, Error: 16

It doesn't happen with XFree86-4.0.3 on linux (when I log onto the NT box
with ssh), so perhaps I'll file in a bug report. Which X server do you use?

Yes, I couldn't find 'fooo' from the source or binary myself either. 
vherva@enigma:Program Files/StarNet/X-Win5.1>strings **/*|grep fooo

finds nothing either, and it isn't in the X libraries. Where the heck is

Nice to know it's a known problem. Have you any idea, what might cause it?

thank you for taking the time to answer,
