What specifically goes wrong? Is there an error message? Core dump?
Bogus display?

Sorry that was really not clear .. Yeah the display shows an error message because there is not enough memory or there will be not enough memory to do the next operations . No core dump . No bogus display but a display slow down and very instable.
It means that if you don't close it quicklyODODOy the application crash (XServer closing connection )...) . So I would like to know how to avoid this to make some small things with two windows (for one there is less problems) work on thos xterms.

Thanks . Fanci.
