Description Ulrike Jahnke-Soltau 2007-06-18 10:00:22 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
1. File, New, ok, 
2. select a pencil, paintbrush or similar
3. try to paint, and it crashes sooner or later, mostly sooner, with the following message:

Stack trace:

xxxxx@xxxxx ~/projekte/bilder $ gimp
This is a development version of GIMP.  Debug messages may appear here.

The program 'gimp' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)'.
  (Details: serial 26493 error_code 3 request_code 39 minor_code 0)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
xxxxx@xxxxx ~/projekte/bilder $

Your copy of XLib is broken.

Comment 2 Ulrike Jahnke-Soltau 2007-06-18 19:19:05 UTC
The Bug that obviously was a duplicate used XLib 1.12

I updated to XLib 1.14, it got me the same crash with slighly different addresses.

(script-fu:7168): LibGimpBase-WARNING **: script-fu: wire_read(): error

Which XLib do you think is appropriate?

This bug has been fixed upstream a week ago or something. So any libx11 version released earlier should be considered suspicious.

I am closing this bug again, since it is pretty likely that this still is a buggy version.
