Issues with LogJam 4.3.2 [Apr. 21st, 2004|09:21 pm]


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

logjam doesn't use any lower-level x stuff, so this is probably either a gtk bug or a problem on your system.

which version of gtk? (pkg-config --modversion gtk+-2.0)

also, maybe a backtrace (follow their directions, i can elaborate if you need) might help...

Today I tried to X11 forward from my box at home to my box at work and it worked! The X server at work is a cygwin X server. Very curious... X11 forwarding still doesn't work locally.

Could you explain how to do the stack trace?

I'm sorry Evan, but it was my fault. Thanks for the advice though. The crazy gentoo people are always breaking their boxes :)

I found the problem to be in the SSH client side not wanting to forward 'trusted' hosts. Adding the following to /etc/ssh/ssh_config fixed my problem:

ForwardX11Trusted yes

They changed the default of this option to 'no' with OpenSSH 3.8. Thanks anyway.
