After viewing lots of large images, Mozilla 1.2.1 crashes with the following message:
Gdk-ERROR **: BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)
serial 431303 error_code 11 request_code 53 minor_code 0
and sometimes another 2 lines:
Gdk-ERROR **: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter)
serial 271346 error_code 9 request_code 146 minor_code 3
The problem is not necessarily with viewing lots of large images at once, you can view large images one by one, and eventually it will crash. It seems something is "filling up", and gets a bit too big, and causes the crash. Whether this is in Mozilla or GTK, i don't know, but I have no other problems with GTK apps.
View some fairly large images, keep looking at more and more of them. A good place is linuks.mine.nu/debian-worldmap/ - just keep on looking at more and more maps, they're all big, and I can't get through the page looking at every linked map before Mozilla crashes.
I don't know.
