If it seems likely that the X error handler changes are at fault, I
can revert them.  I have a pretty good idea how to fix the crashes
they were originally meant to address in a different, less intrusive
way (the idea is to make those functions that call x_catch_errors in a
signal handler instead call XSetErrorHandler to install a temporary
"ignore all errors" handler.)

Unfortunately, I have not been able to experience these crashes
