Bug#362269: x11-common: pgrade from 6.9.0.dfsg to 1:7.0.10 breaks many programs with "request_code 151 minor_code 23"
I just used aptitude to upgrade my debian/unstable box (the previous
full update was on 2006-03-19), most notably this upgraded the X system
to 7.0.10. And since then, many X programs are either crashing (mostly
before even displaying anything), or reporting the same error code while
functionning otherwise unaffected.
for instance : gqview, firefox, thunderbird, emacs... all crash on
launch and report :
X protocol error: BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)
on protocol request 151
The error was 'BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)'.
(Details: serial 418 error_code 1 request_code 151 minor_code 23)
gimp starts OK, but crashes when opening any kind of menu.
While knode (and all kde/qt programs I tried so far) run without
problem, though reporting the same errors a few times on startup :
X Error: BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation) 1
Major opcode: 151
Minor opcode: 23
