X is "out of resources"

Anyone know what might cause this:

X Error of failed request:  BadAlloc (insufficient resources for
  Major opcode of failed request:  53 (X_CreatePixmap)
  Serial number of failed request:  1017
  Current serial number in output stream:  1053

it seems i get it often when i try to run netscape and XMMS together at
the same time..in this case netscape crashed and can't re load, however
when i quit xmms, netscape loads fine, but then i cant load xmms (till i
restart X)

using a P3-500 Linux 2.2.16+ow1 Debian woody netscape is 4.73/glibc xmms
is 1.0.1 i believe. been happening a lot, never experienced this as often
as it is occuring before.
