I have not seen this with local clients, but I _have_ seen something similar from time to time with remote (ssh tunneled) clients. IIRC there was also some kind of squawk about display permissions, as if something related to xauth had gotten messed up. I'm running FreeBSD 6.1 with Xorg 6.9.0; remotes are various Linux and Solaris boxes (and I haven't made note of their versions, nor if the problem happens with some remote versions and not others). Point being that, if we're both seeing the same issue or closely related, it's not of recent origin. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
