Angry My Window crashes

Hi there,

Could somebody tell me what does it mean :
X Error of failed request: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
Major opcode of failed request: 2 (X_ChangeWindowAttributes)
Resource id in failed request: 0x4800176
Serial number of failed request: 9868
Current serial number in output stream: 9874

It happens when I click on the window. What is happening next is that the window closes itself with the message above on the command line. The window actually comes from another machine (an HP-UX). I just do export DISPLAY to run this window on my Linux.

Thanks for any informations.

Jules Tartonpillon
