X and emacs bug
Wed, 12 Feb 2003 23:10:56 -0500
Dear emacs subscribers,
I'm having some problems with emacs and X that's driving me insane.
Currenty, I don't know which one is causing the problem so I thought I'd ask
the subscribers what they think. Before I describe the problem, I'd like to
state that I'm running debian linux with xfree86 4.1.0-16.
The problem is regaring emacs, X, and maybe Java(Sun rpm converted to deb).
Once a Java window is launched such as:

Here is the normal pic: http://rplaca.cs.qc.edu/~bpark/normal.jpg
Here is the weird pic: http://rplaca.cs.qc.edu/~bpark/weird.gif
If you look at the weird picture, I drew arrows indicating that the space
between these arrows are not normal. In fact, it looks like they are double
height. Take a look at the cursor on the left top corner and you'll see
There are other cases where this happens but this is the only case that
maintains a consistency. As far as I can remember, this was happening far
before Java was ever installed on my system.
Now, this a very odd problem and I don't know if the source of the problem
is caused by emacs fonts or X windows. Currently I'm using .Xresources file
to manipulate emacs font.
What I need to know is the source of this problem. I highly doubt this is
caused by Java since I've seen this happen at other times. Any ideas or
suggestion will be highly appreciated.
