[Pkg-electronics-devel] Bug#659144: pcb: PCB won't start: X Window System Error

Package: pcb
Version: 20110918-4
Severity: important

Dear Debian Electronics Team,

After calling 'pcb' from the KDE menu bar, nothing happens. Using
the shell for the program call I received the message

$ pcb
The program 'pcb' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)'.
  (Details: serial 120 error_code 1 request_code 136 minor_code 19)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

Using 'pcb-lesstif' instead of 'pcb-gtk' works, but I don't like the
lesstif-GUI ;-)

Best regards
