Description rknasc 2008-02-21 12:34:35 UTC
SuSE 10.3 (running a Linux kernel,
xorg-x11-7.2-135.4, and xterm-229-17) dies when given the command:

xterm -t

with a message of

xterm:  warning, error event received:
X Error of failed request:  BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
  Major opcode of failed request:  18 (X_ChangeProperty)
  Resource id in failed request:  0x0
  Serial number of failed request:  454
  Current serial number in output stream:  456

It worked fine under SuSE 10.2 and earlier
Comment 1 Thomas E. Dickey 2009-06-03 12:28:35 UTC
This was fixed in xterm patch #232 (2008/1/30>
