Details - Hello,


Slackware 14.1 x86_64
Awesome 3.5.5
Nvidia GTX660M - 331.67 drivers
Conky 1.9.0

I've been told this might be a conky bug, but I've never had crashes with conky 
ever and this script runs fine in other DE/WM; KDE, Gnome, Xfce, Openbox.

This is my script

background yes
use_xft yes
xftfont aller:size=9
xftalpha 0.8
out_to_console no
update_interval 3.0
total_run_times 0
draw_shades no

own_window yes
own_window_type desktop    # normal /override /desktop
own_window_transparent yes
own_window_hints undecorate,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager,below,sticky

minimum_size 1920
maximum_width 1920

double_buffer yes
default_color e3412c
color1 DDBBAA

alignment top_middle
gap_y 5 #vertical
#gap_x 0 #horizontal
no_buffers yes

${execi 70 ~/.conky/scripts/}

And when I try running conky this is the ouput I'm getting;

Conky: forked to background, pid is 7423
Conky: desktop window (289) is root window
Conky: window type - desktop
Conky: drawing to created window (0xc00001)
Conky: drawing to double buffer
X Error of failed request:  BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
  Major opcode of failed request:  2 (X_ChangeWindowAttributes)
  Serial number of failed request:  237
  Current serial number in output stream:  238

I've tried several options and the only thing I can get to work is with 
override, but I like using compton and this draws shadows around it. 

I've been testing conky without compton running, this is why I didn't list it 
for 'specs'

Thank you! :)
