Issues with LogJam 4.3.2

I recently compiled LogJam 4.3.2 on my Gentoo system. It was one of my recently updates when I did a sync. This may sound a bit strange but I use logjam as a different user than the user running Gnome, and prior to this upgrade I had no issues. When I execute logjam I do the following:

ssh -X user@localhost logjam

It loads and draws the main editor window however as soon as I click anywhere that isn't part of the window decoration it crashes. I also receive the following error if run in a terminal:

The program 'logjam' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)'.
(Details: serial 1916 error_code 3 request_code 38 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.)

Like I said this only started happening with 4.3.2 and I'd really prefer to run it as a different user. Is this a known issue? It is always reproducable and logjam works fine if I do not X11 forward.


I just tested 4.4.0 and recieved the same results with X11 forwarding

update again:
resolved. read comments for info
