Do you have a bug open about this yet?
Try following the above instructions; and run "t a a bt" in gdb when you
hit the breakpoint in gdk_x_error (short for "thread apply all
backtrace"). Attach the result to the bug. More info on doing this can
be seen at:
I've seen a few such errors, and at least one of these turned out to be
fallout from the change to client-side windows in gtk-2.18:
See e.g. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=543278 (istanbul)
and maybe: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=546159 (ibus).
A good backtrace in bugzilla is the best way to track this down, I
Hope this is helpful
