Hi list,

I rolled my own perl-tk script for adding/removing users on our cluster and it has been running fine for some years now.
But when i wanted to use it today, it died with:

[EMAIL PROTECTED] [~] # usrmgr/usrmgr.pl
[the usual messages about unused variables]
X Error of failed request:  BadAtom (invalid Atom parameter)
  Major opcode of failed request:  18 (X_ChangeProperty)
  Atom id in failed request:  0x1a6
  Serial number of failed request:  12
  Current serial number in output stream:  15

I have no clue what this could be. Other X11 apps run fine. I am logged in via ssh -X.
FreeBSD 5.2.1-RELEASE-p8
perl-5.6.1_15 Practical Extraction and Report Language
perl-5.8.4 Practical Extraction and Report Language

2 versions of perl? Is this ok?

Does anyone have an idea?
