inconsistent X server?


hi,
i tried to open emacs and got this message:

Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

emacs: Cannot connect to X server :0.0.
Check the DISPLAY environment variable or use `-d'.
Also use the `xhost' program to verify that it is set to permit
connections from your machine.


about 10 seconds later, i tried again and emacs opened ok.

strange

Something similar happened to me as well.
I attempted to open Totem Movie Player, but it just crashed on me and didn't give any errors. As a matter of fact, no program would start, so I logged out and logged back in. Everything was well after that.
Of all the distros I used, this only happened on Mandrake 10.0 CE, and sometimes on earlier versions. Probably has something to do with X...

Also tried from command line

After Totem failed to start by using the menu, I tried '/usr/bin/totem' from the command line and Totem managed to open, but closed instantly, without any error messages popping up on the command line. So basically, it went like this:

_______
[mike@genesisx]$ /usr/bin/totem
(Note: Totem now opened, and closed instantly. No errors displayed.)
[mike@genesisx]$
_______

That's rather weird, since it would usually spit back an error or two if something went wrong.
