drag and drop problem between java windows on linux

I am using xorg-server-1.10.3-1 under Cygwin in Windows 7 64-bit and
have the problem of not being able to drag and drop from 2 different
java windows launched off a linux server box.  I am using Redhat 5.4
as my linux server that I am displaying from.

For example to reproduce the problem:

Launch two java Notepad applications (found in java 1.6 SDK under
demos/jfc/Notepad/Notepad.jar) to display back to the Windows 7 Cygwin
X Server (using the default internal window manager).

Put some text in one Notepad application and try to perform a drag n
drop to the other Notepad application, it fails.  Copy and paste
works.

Drag n drop inside one notepad works.

Drag n drop using different window managers with the above setup works
(e.g., OpenBox, twm, etc.)

This appears to be another Linux Java related issue similar to the
inset menu problem fixed recently on the internal window manager.  If
I am displaying back QT or GTK windows such as gedit for example then
the drag and drop works between the 2 different windows.

Thanks,
Luke

Fix for modifier keys after gaining focus patch

The recent patch for sending modifier key presses when a window gains
focus depending on internal state and modifier key state has a
problem. If the right control key is pressed when a window is gaining
focus, it receives a left control keydown event, and the control state
gets stuck because the window never receives a left control keyup
event. The problem is fairly easy to replicate: run emacs-X11 from
xterm, quit with [C-x C-x] using right control (which gives focus back
to xterm), and try pressing keys. Until you press left control, all
keys you've pressed get interpreted as [C-key].

The patch is easy (and it has already been raised in
http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-xfree/2012-01/msg00003.html, but
the idea was dismissed later because of internal state only keeping
track of control
key, and not individual left/right control keys). I have tried the
patch below, and didn't observe any side effects so far. I've also
modified the alt/ctrl check t only consider lctrl, since the other
parts of the source seemed to indicate altgr emits a spurious lctrl.

Best regards,
Vedat Hallac

Xwin.exe always take about 50% CPU load on Windows 7 with XDCMP connection

Hi,

I’m using Xwin.exe (version 5. Feb 2012, X.org servers – 1.11.4-3) on my Windows 7 system. When
connecting with XDCMP (using startxdcmp.bat, with %RUN% XWin -query %REMOTE_HOST% -once -lesspointer
-clipboard -emulate3buttons), after connect, the CPU load is about 50%. Even when nothing is done (only
the CDE desktop is running, nothing else).

On another Windows 7 system, also connecting with XDCMP to the same server, same CDE, the CPU load is not that
high. The version of XWin is one of 5. Feb 2009.

The XCDMP server is a Solaris 10 system, using Solaris classic CDE (not the Java Desktop environment). The
high CPU load did not happen when the CDE waits for the logon screen, but happens as soon as login was completed.

Regards,
Kees

BTW. Just when I was writing this email I decided to check (again) for a newer version, and there was one…
Moving to X.org servers 1.11.4-5 seems to solve this issue ☺. However, I did not find any release note
telling that this problem was solved….

I'm not sure where you were looking if you didn't find [1].

'On Cygwin 1.7.10 this caused XWin to spin, when started from a non-cygwin
process, spamming the log with  "_XSERVTransSocketUNIXAccept: accept() failed"
messages.'

waiting for X server to begin accepting connections .


Hello,

Tonight, from home, over my employer's VPN connection: impossible to start
Gnu emacs over X.
After the usual expr dumping core:

/usr/bin/startx: line 47:  6444 Segmentation fault      (core dumped) expr
"$1" : ':[0-9][0-9]*$' > /dev/null 2>&1

I get an effect which I have already seen, but only until now in a transient
mode:

waiting for X server to begin accepting connections .
..

..
..

Only now, it goes on until timeout, and reproduces on the next try...

The log ends in:

successfully opened the display.
[ 12500.250] winClipboardProc - XOpenDisplay () returned and successfully
opened the display.

My command (in a batch file):

I started looking at the .server* and .Xauthority files.
Found that .Xauthority keeps growing (but not since the origin of times--and
see below: cleaned up after timeout!).
Now, I removed a previous version so that I only have a smaller chunk left:
