Subject: lxterminal: fails to start, reports BadValue
Date: Tue, 09 Jun 2009 13:24:52 -0300
Package: lxterminal
Version: 0.1.5-1
Severity: important

lxterminal works fine for me on two intel graphics/single head/i386/sid machines.

On my xinerama/radeonhd/amd64/lenny+sid based machine I get the
following error message when I try to start lxterminal:

The program 'lxterminal' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)'.
  (Details: serial 204 error_code 2 request_code 94 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.)

I haven't figured out so far how to get a stacktrace out of it; I did
recompile with symbols, but still couldn't find the referenced symold
