bug#17975: 24.3.92; assertion failure deleting frames with varying names

From: Ken Raeburn
Subject: bug#17975: 24.3.92; assertion failure deleting frames with varying names for the same display (and, using multiple X11 connections in that case too)

I meant a mix of :0 and :0.0 forms had been saved.

Would it not be enough to do a similar canonicalization of $DISPLAY and the 
make-frame-on-display argument, if that was enough in emacsclient?

I don't think it would be practical for me to run a patched X11 at work. I was 
going to run a test at home, but my home GNU/Linux setup (Debian "wheezy" 
distro) seems to have a newer X11 package (1.5.0, with patches including 
ximcp/imLcPrs.c and imTrX.c but not imInsClbk.c) than the one at work (Ubuntu 
"precise" distro, with patches), and I haven't been able to reproduce 
the problem yet.

I tried running under valgrind (on the Ubuntu system where I can reproduce the 
problem, similar invocation except for using localhost:10 and localhost:10.0 
because I'm logged in remotely) and I got an invalid-read error as well, though 
the location where the memory was already freed is in Emacs, not in X11 (though 
perhaps that just means X11 freed it while Emacs kept a dangling reference, 
then Emacs allocated the same buffer pointer and freed it again):
