xpra crashed while selecting text: The program 'xpra' received an X Window System error. — at Version 1

Description (last modified by Antoine Martin)

xpra has crashed a few times. It's always the same setting:

1) I'm running gnome-terminal from a remote machine with xpra.
2) From that gnome-terminal I run "ssh -Y yet-another-machine firefox" to run firefox from a remote machine that does not have xpra installed
3) I select some text in firefox

=> all xpra windows disappear.

The

Xvfb-for-Xpra-:7 +extension Composite -screen 0 3840x2560x24+32 -noreset -auth /home/lindi/.Xauthority :7

process and its clients seem to be alive but xpra is gone. I have to use "DISPLAY=:7 x11vnc & xvncviewer :0" to shut them down properly.

Full $HOME/.xpra/lindi1-7.log is attached. I'm running svn r67.

The fact that this is reproducible should make it easier to debug and fix.

It would be interresting to know if the "--no-clipboard" server flag prevents the crash, it should. (not a solution obviously, just to narrow it down)

FYI: you should be able to use the xpra flag "--use-display" to re-start the xpra server against the existing Xvfb display, no need for VNC.
