Can't run apps in Xnest

When I try to run Xnest, I get this error:

Couldn't get keyboard
then when I try to run an app (such as xterm) in Xnest, I get this error:

X Error of failed request:  BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)
  Major opcode of failed request:  45 (X_OpenFont)
  Serial number of failed request:  61
  Current serial number in output stream:  62
What's going on?

I'm on Ubuntu Edgy if that helps.
