Problem with visual and vim 6.1.247 on KDE 3.0.4?
- Hello dear list members,
I have the following problem with vim. Shortly after typing v, shift-v or
control-v for starting to highlight in one of the visual modes, vim abruptly
dies after approx. 0.5 secs with the following error message:
XIO: fatal IO error 14 (Ungültige Adresse) on X server ":0.0"
after 140 requests (139 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
"Ungültige Adresse" probably translates to "Invalid address".
I compile vim with the following options:
I can reproduce this error on xterm and konsole.
$ xterm -version
$ konsole -version
When starting vim as gvim this error does not occur.
I compile vim using the following script:
I thought my sources were wrong but I have reproduced the problem with a fresh
The problem does not occur when the DISPLAY variable is not set.
Access to the X-Server is basically possible, it is possible to start X
programs from xterm or konsole.
My system: S.u.S.E. Linux 8.1.
The problem occurs when using KDE.
The problem does NOT occur with GNOME, Enlightenment or failsafe, even when
using the KDE program Konsole with these window managers.
Has anyone else experienced this strange behaviour?
Does someone has an idea of how I can try to reproduce this error with another
program so I can exclude it's the fault of vim?
Is this a known bug in KDE?
My current workaround is to compile vim without any GUI support.
This workaround does for me since except for web surfing, gaming, mail,
addressbook and calendar I only work in console, and I could compile a second
vim for GUI only when I'd really need gvim.

libraries sometimes causes problems. XIM might also cause a problem,
since it's X-server related.
