libX11_6: 'dead_actute' typo in en_US UTF-8 Compose file

When I run Qt5 applications in Cygwin, the following warning is generated:

     "Qt Warning - invalid keysym: dead_actute"

It appears that this is due to a typo in the en_US UTF-8 Compose file. 
When you rebuild libX11, please could you include the following patch:

http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/lib/libX11/commit/?id=5dcb40f28d59587597d2ff6e6ac64c71cfe6ff7b

Many thanks in advance,

Dave.

Subject: Re: FW: Cygwin start menu / mirrors

first of all, regarding the Cygwin setup program; the options are install / re-install / un-install / default

is it correct that to install only the latest updates, I would choose the option 'default' ?

next question : if I delete the start menu option "Cygwin/x" and run the setup program for option "default",
it doesn't re-create the start menu option "Cygwin/x"

is this 'feature' acknowledged, and is it being addressed?

Re: Clipboard interaction issues - breaks after awhile

Today I ran into an interesting variant of this.

1.  putty   ssh -X session from XP to a remote Centos 6.5 system.
2.  on the remote system: xterm &
3.  copy a line of text on remote system
4.  paste it into a roundcube "compose" window on XP system.  The 
browser is
Seamonkey 2.29.

It works fine for a while and then the _browser_ locks.  It is 
definitely an X11
issue because this unlocked the browser: exit all xterms, exit the putty 
session, kill
the X11 server.  The browser didn't unlock until the last step.

This lock up happened twice within half an hour.  Now I can't reproduce 
it.

That is the only system I have used recently that uses xterm instead of 
uxterm.

The clipboard problems I have seen previously were all in the other 
direction, where clip going into an X11 application would fail.

Unfortunately I didn't save the X server log file.  Which, brings up 
another point.
The X11 server is started by clicking on "start_server.bat" which 
contains:

 <at> echo off

Re: Problem with Cygwin/X from remote Linux

Hello, Jon.

The version of Fedora I'm running is:
Linux rolf 3.9.10-100.fc17.x86_64 #1 SMP Sun Jul 14 01:31:27 UTC 2013 
x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I thought the two logs that you requested were a bit large for this 
e-mail, so I put them on my web site.  You can access them as:
http://beachware.org/Cygwin/glxinfo.cygwin
http://beachware.org/Cygwin/X.log

Believe it or not, I just so happen to have an XWin.0.log from my old, 
old, old version of Cygwin.  It was:

Welcome to the XWin X Server
Vendor: The Cygwin/X Project
Release: 1.15.1.0
OS: CYGWIN_NT-6.1 grover 1.7.30(0.272/5/3) 2014-05-23 10:36 x86_64
OS: Windows 7 Service Pack 1 [Windows NT 6.1 build 7601](Win64)
Package: version 1.15.1-2 built 2014-05-06

XWin was started with the following command line:

X :0 -multiwindow

Let me know if there's anything else I can provide.

Do these updates solve the problem with the start menu?

I usually download updates from; ftp://mirrors.kernel.org/sourceware/cygwin/

Today it says;

"One or more mirrors you have selected is/are not on the list of official Cygwin mirrors any more. They may be
out of date or missing some packages.

if you experience installation problems consider trying official mirrors only"

when I click Yes, it goes to a download screen for setup.bz2.sig

and it stalls

which server should I be using? surely mirrors.kernel.org should be trustworthy?

Problem with Cygwin/X from remote Linux

I've been using Cygwin on a Windows 7 laptop for a few years as an X
server from my Fedora Linux system.  I "ssh -X" to my Linux system and
run various X programs (thunderbird, chrome, nautilus, etc.) with very
few issues.

Every now and then, I will upgrade Cygwin_64 just to get the latest
changes.  I hope that the few issues I have will be cleared up.  I
believe the one issue I have with Thunderbird may be Thunderbird, not
Cygwin/X.

Anyway, over the past weekend, I upgraded again.  The upgrade seemed to
go well.  No surprises until...

One of the things I've been doing is learning OpenGL.  I'm converting a
sample program that I acquired while working at SGI to OpenGL (it was
written in gl, the original SGI graphics language). For the past few
months, all of my OpenGL programs have worked fine over the network.
Suddenly, with the latest version of Cygwin/X, it doesn't.

     Welcome to the XWin X Server
     Vendor: The Cygwin/X Project
     Release: 1.16.1.0
