Re: xserver crashes

Hi Michael and all,

I thought I sent email out last night regarding this issue but somehow it never made it.

Which window manager? Have you tried another one?

The problem occurs when I use WindowMaker. Resizing/moving windows in WindowMaker causes it to crash and this is documented as being a bug in WindowMaker 0.61, which is used in Potato. It has been fixed in the current version of WindowMaker although I haven't tried this out yet.

I don't understand this, please explain further.

Ignore this...

Sorry if you mentioned it before, but which X server is it?


Ignore this too. I am pretty sure the problem is with WindowMaker. I don't have this problem when I'm using fvwm2. Is anyone else having this problem when using WindowMaker?
