Comment:

the xpra server process crashes while I'm away from my computer

When the server crashes, what's in your server log? (could be something like the memleak reported in #2730)

When you can't recover with --use-display, please try adding -d all and posting the log file. (or at least -d x11)

Looks like there's an override-redirect window in a weird state, r26594 should help with that: at least the other windows should be loaded properly and the server should start. (you can apply it by hand to your server version) But I still need to understand the root error to fix it properly.

    55If I try to recover the Xorg session with the --use-display command line switch to xpra start, the server fails to start due to an XError:

    2222Interestingly, I am able to start an xpra shadow session attached to the running instance of Xorg, but since there is no window manager, it is not very usable.
