I mentioned this error before on the X11 list without getting a response.

I found out meanwhile that I get this error message only when I run my custom kernel. Running either the kernel from the 6.2 RELEASE or the rebuilt GENERIC kernel did not result in this error message.

I added this to the kernel configuration:

machine         i386
cpu             I486_CPU
cpu             I586_CPU
#cpu            I686_CPU
ident           P2120


device          acpi_fujitsu    # support for the additional buttons
device          acpi_video      # no real information given
device          cpufreq         # support for none ACPI frequency control
device          drm             # enables kernel support for direct rendering
device          radeondrm       # enables support of the ATI Radeon chipset



The error message:

You have mail.
/home/erich > thunderbird &
[1] 42052
/home/erich > The program 'thunderbird-bin' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadLength (poly request too large or internal Xlib length erro'.
  (Details: serial 186251 error_code 16 request_code 18 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.)
