RE: Novice Question

Thanks for your help

Yes your correct the IP6 had nothing to do with the problem ..(again thanks)

Here is the backtrace requested

Firstly, thanks very much for trying it out and reporting the problem.

I don't believe IPv6 is the cause of the problem you are seeing, this just 
happens to be the last line of output written.

You could test this by adding '-nolisten inet6' to the command line used to 
start the X server.

If the suggestion above fails, I'd like your help to get a backtrace, if you

are willing:

1. Download
(this is a build of the X server but with debugging symbols
2. bunzip2 XWin.20090628173519.exe.bz2 to uncompress it
3. gdb --args ./XWin.20090628173519.exe  -multiwindow -clipboard -logverbose
(you may need to install the gdb package)
4  wait for the '(gdb)' prompt, type 'r'
5. wait for the segmentation fault to occur, you should get another '(gdb)' 
prompt, "bt full"
6. post the output
