despite all my attempts emacs just died....
this happened when emacsclient tried to create a new frame.

This is Yet Another Unnecessary X Protocol Error Crash, probably the
5th or 6th one to date.  As I've said many times, it's not necessary
for Emacs to crash on X protocol errors, since they are not fatal
errors, and can occur on misconfigured X servers.  The only reason to
crash is to annoy the user.

We generally try to not crash. If it still crashes it means that some code does not handle errors, and we need to find that code. It can also be in the lucid part of the code, and then it may be harder to find.

That said, there certainly are X protocol errors Emacs should crash on, such as BadAlloc.
