System: NetBSD azenomei.falu.nl 1.5.1_BETA NetBSD 1.5.1_BETA (AZENOMEI) #0: Sun Apr 22 00:38:14 CEST 2001 firstname.lastname@example.org:/vol1/rhialto/cvs/netbsd-1-5/syssrc/sys/arch/alpha/compile/AZENOMEI alpha
I upgraded a bunch of packages, and got the latest pth among them.
After it was upgraded, some packages which use it broke. The
ones that I noticed are gnumeric0, gmc, and xchat. There are
doubtless many more.
The first 2 never showed their initial window.
Xchat did show its initial (server selection) window but when
the main window was appearing it crashed with an X error
(something with "invalid window").
Mozilla 1.1 is also behaving strangely now (I had 1.0 before):
it opens only the very first page, any next or additional page
reports an error: "Operation timed out when attempting to
connect to <server>". This may or may not be related.
When I reverted to the previous libpthread (libpthread.so.14.20)
these programs (except Mozilla) worked again as before.
Install pth and (for example) gmc. Try to run gmc. Observe none
of its windows appear,
Workaround: Comment out this line in devel/pth/Makefile:
This does not help Mozilla (so this may be unrelated).
