Re: Cygwin 1.7 beta XWin Crashs from Ubuntun 9.10 after Firefox sessions

I ssh to Ubuntu 9.10 box and brought up Firefox. After a few screens I've got XWin crashes. I've got the following:
Welcome to the XWin X Server
Vendor: The Cygwin/X Project
Release: (10701000)
Build Date: 2009-10-25
2009-10-31 17:32:18 Segmentation fault at address 0x0
2009-10-31 17:32:18 Fatal server error:
2009-10-31 17:32:18 Caught signal 11 (Segmentation fault). Server aborting

Any idea what could be the problem. Thanks.

I'm not able to reproduce this problem, so I'd like your help to get a backtrace, if you are willing:

1. Download [1] (this is a build of the 1.7.1-1 XWin server but with debugging symbols unstripped)
2. bunzip2 XWin-1.7.1-1.unstripped.exe.bz2 to uncompress it
(you may need to install the bzip2 package)
3. gdb --args ./XWin-1.7.1-1.unstripped.exe -clipboard
(you may need to install the gdb package)
4. Wait for the '(gdb)' prompt, type 'run'
5. In another terminal window, do your ssh, start firefox and do whatever you do to make the crash happen. You should get another '(gdb)' prompt, type 'bt full'
6. post the output
