RE: Error in <RootX11ErrorHandler>: BadAccess

Hello Ilka,
Running ROOT (v5.xx) "benchmarks.C" always gives me this (88) error on "hsimple.C" step. (under eXceed v.10, 3 MGhz , 1Gb RAM WinXP). The same test with Qt layer ON runs well, with no problem. It seems to me the problem is coming from the "client" side rarher from the server. My Client is SL 3.02, 512 Mgb RAM. I did not check others.  

Hope this helps

	Hi Tobias,
	The reported error code (XREQ: 88) is related to the FreeColors. We made
	tests on 2.4.21-32.0.1.EL.cernsmp and did not see the problem. Please
	provide in more details which steps you follow for reproducing the
	reported case.
	Thank you, Ilka
