After upgrading to M0.9.2 I get crashes if I use Mozilla heavily:

I see this myself from time to time on OpenVMS, most notably when I run
the browser buster. I don't think its a VMS-specific bug, it just happens to
occur more on OpenVMS for some reason. There are some similar other bug
reports for sure.

Bug 76505 and bug 76125 both report BadDrawable errors but with different 
request codes. Bug 88741 reports identical error and request codes. The
sequence to produce the error is very different but is it the same underlying

I#ve the feeling that the "crash rate" for M0.9.2 is higher.
I checked the PTHREAD_DUMP.LOG files, but there is no output from the Mozilla
executable, as I remember the message in the terminal window was always a
BadDrawable error.
The analysis of the process dump shows always: dynamic memory exhausted. I'm not
able to get more information from the dump my knowledge of OpenVMS isn't good

Theo, when ANAL/PROC says:

%RMS-F-DME, dynamic memory exhausted

I think its because ANALYZE is running out of memory. I don't think its
telling you that Mozilla failed because it ran out of memory.

Try ANAL/PROC without the /IMAGE and it will drop you into the DELTA debugger
without any word of a DME condition.

We need a url and test case.

I don't think its any particular URL. This problem occurs intermittently, after
Mozilla has been used for a while. At least thats how I see it.

The GDK error is the only clue. I'll try and get some more info from a
debug build.

The GDK error is not really a GDK error. GDK establishes an error handler via
a call to XSetErrorHandler, and its this error handler which is getting called
by XLib. So its XLib who is detecting the error. 

I was able to track down where this is coming from, and guess what, its right
where I had to change some code for R5 support. The precise line that generates
the error is the XSync call at 

Remember, the error is:
  Gdk-ERROR **: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter)
    serial 69 error_code 9 request_code 62 minor_code 0
and it only happens occasionally. When running choffmans browser buster I can
get to about 50-150 sites visited before I see this failure.

Is the BadDrawable due to the R5 _XtUnregisterWindow call not doing exactly
the same as the R6 XtUnregisterDrawable call?

The ironic part is that the comment says we need to do the XSync call to 
prevent X errors.

Should I use gdk_error_trap_push/pop to ignore this error?

cc'ing blizzard and pavlov in the hope that the gurus can explain this to me

See also bug 86645 (which I believe is the same bug) and 76505 (which was the
same or similar bug that was occuring on other platforms but a fix was 
provided and it went away on other platforms (but remained on OpenVMS)).

I've been trying a few things:
  - setting core.window to 0 - no difference
  - ignore the error - just get a baddrawable somewhere else later
  - remove the XSync call - just crashes sooner
  - add another XSync call before unregister - no difference

So then I put a printf statement in just before the call to unregister and
guess what, now its EXTREMELY hard to reproduce this problem. The problem does
still happen but its MUCH MUCH less frequent.

So its timing related...

I'm convinced that this is the same problem as reported in bug 86645. Moving
all discussions there.
