aterm has encountered a problem interacting with X Windows :
Request: 2, Error: 3(BadWindow (invalid Window parameter))
in resource: 0x0


hi,
just out of stage3&portage emerge --sync emerge x11 & aterm

launching aterm produces this error message, but apparently it is perfectly working.
So just to know if i have to be afraid about: what does this error message mean ?

regards

It's hard to say what causes that without knowing some specifics about what aterm is trying to do, but if it only shows up once when you start it, I wouldn't worry about it.

Also encountering exactly the same message (on a fresh and squeaky clean 2008.0_beta1 install). I've never used aterm before so I don't know if this is typical. Using fluxbox if that's relevant.

I'd love to know what's causing this and if there's a way to clean things up so it doesn't occur.
