Re: cygwinx 1.7 beta - crashes runing virt-manager

Ok - that worked. Was able to remove -noclipboard as well. Will use for a while and make sure it stays up... so far, so good.

Anyone have suggestions?

I can't even use XDMCP to log-in to Fedora 12 (Constantine), due to random segfaults :-(

These seem to be due to a bad interaction between the damage tracking for the Composite extension and damage tracking for the shadow framebuffer.

So can you try disabling the composite extension with '-extension Composite'? (note the captialization)
