      How about a solution that I
    suggested some time ago, of simply ignoring non-fatal X errors (as
    recommended in the X manual)?  No one responded to this thread.

That would avoid the crashes.  My concern is that it would also
avoid the debugging of all such problems in the future.

Perhaps we should ignore BadName errors only.  It is possible that
such errors, in the context of Emacs, are always unimportant, and that
there will be no particular need to debug what causes them, once Emacs
ignores them.  Could someone check an X manual and see if this is

Another idea occurs to me: make these errors display a warning in a
buffer using `display-warning'.  This might be a way to avoid the
crash without just forgetting these errors.
