    Default X Crash running app under wine

    I have an app that has been running under wine for literally years which has
    suddenly begun to crash on opening from a local KDE4 session. I'm using
    11.4 32-bit on the problem machine. I specify the local logon as running
    the same app with the same user logon works like a champ via a VNC
    connection. When the local session crashes, it takes X down with it. Below
    is the message log for the event. Ignore the hplip **** - that's another
    issue that appears frequently and seems to be of no consequence (ie: I just
    ignore it and press on with no problem).

    This looks to be a policykit problem but that leaves me totally in the dark
    so if anyone sees the problem here and/or can suggest a fix I'd appreciate
    it.

    code

    Hey Will
    Do you want to try a version of Crossover I have
    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/10573557/ins...0.0.sh.tar.bz2
    It may get you back in business, I don't know.
    That error sure is odd.
    I know in 11.4 I had odd behaviour in KDE and ended up using Gnome.
    IIRC: Vuze was a bummer.
    I never really tested apps under wine with 11.4/kde though.

    No, this appears to be a recent error on one machine only - everything else
    still plugs along just fine. What has me puzzled is the difference between
    running it with a local login vs. vncserver. Sort of a "when is X no X"
    type of thing.

    I'm hoping to avoid having to dig too deeply into policykit - my fat fingers
    are sure to make a real mess there!
