Hello All,

Some of you might remember me from several years ago. I used to build gnubg on SPARC. I have since moved back to x86 and am currently running Linux Mint 12.0 with XFCE. I did an apt-get update today, and afterwards, gnubg would not run, throwing the following error:

This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it under certain conditions; type `show copying' for details.
(No game) The program 'gnubg' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)'.
  (Details: serial 328 error_code 3 request_code 137 minor_code 4)
  (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.)

Note I would try to fix the problem myself, but I know zero when it comes to programming for X. I have gotten older trees to run, but without 3D, despite GTKGLEXT being detected. Perhaps somebody knows what's going on here. Thanks in advance for any and all help.
