It would be useful to make Emacs detect this case and give a clean
error message such as "Due to GTK+ bug number XYZ, what you want to do
is impossible", rather than just crashing.
The good news is that the bug has been marked as FIXED.  But I don't
know in which Gtk+ version the fix will appear in.  The only way to
detect this particular bug is by checking version numbers.

For the record, I see the following in
/usr/share/doc/libgtk2.0-common/changelog.gz:

This is included in GTK+ 2.16.2, but the recipe to crash Emacs from the
original report still works in
GNU Emacs 23.1.50.4 (x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.16.5)
of 2009-08-04 on turtle .

Note that this recipe does not even involve multiple displays.


You are correct, the fix in Gtk+ is no good, it is obvious that they didn't test the fix.
I've reopened the Gtk+ bug for this with new information:
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=581110


Hopefully a better fix will come.
