x server refuses connections in mid-session


Mandrake 9.1 on an IBM thinkpad 600e. I'm sure something's broken in some config file, I just don't quite know where to look. When I boot and login without root privledges, all is fine for a bit. But after a while, whenever something is opened that needs to open a window, normally nothing happens. If I was lucky enough to open a shell and I type the same command, I see that the connection was refused by server..... The only way I've found so far to restore normal operation is to logout and then in again. What should I check to fix the problem? Thanks in advance,

Hmmm, that is weird. Is the error 'Connection refused by localhost, user is not authorized to connect' or something along those lines? If so, when it happens again, try to command 'xhost + localhost' and see if that helps. Either that or the new windows doesn't have a valid env for DISPLAY picked up from the environment. Don't know what could cause that. I need the exact error you see.

i got thisoutput using eterm. all i had done was play a real audio clip and a game....Using mozilla firebird as the browser...note that I did not see info about display varablr until i happened to use eterm... attempting to set display...

At this point it seems to be all i can do is logout... sigh...

setenv instead of set? localhost instead of 127.0.0.1?

forgot setenv doesmt seem to work in *nix....any suggestions what to check? if xhost + is done before it stops working then it never happens.

should note that those errors directly after the set commands are generated when any *new* window attempts to open in an application not already running....those particular errors were generated when i tried to play another ra clip...
