weird problem: X restarts if I click in an ssd'ed xterm
Last night I tried to work from home on my university's network. First
the command "ssh -f email@example.com xterm -sl 2048 -fg beige" didn't work.
I got "can't open display" error message. So I did some google search
and tried "ssh -X firstname.lastname@example.org xterm -sl 2048 -fg beige". But when I
right-click on the xterm that is opened, surprisingly and unexpectedly X
restarts -- well actually I get logged out and the nvidia screen
splashed and I am given the Debian login screen again, just as if I had
I am running 2.4.22 kernel on Sarge, compiled for the nvidia 4496
driver. I am not sure where to start debugging this thing, so if I am
missing any diagnostics I should have posted, just let me know. I will
post them next time I log into Debian, at present I am in Fedora -- I
*got* to get smoe work done, right? Can't keep on struggling Debain all
the time hee hee :))
