Bug Description

Binary package hint: guake

The following text is printed into stderr, if guake is running from another terminal:

The program '' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'RenderBadPicture (invalid Picture parameter)'.
  (Details: serial 1229 error_code 161 request_code 149 minor_code 7)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

These steps can reproduce this error:

* Run an app that can switch between windowed and fullscreen mode (such as DOSBox or MPlayer) in windowed mode from Guake terminal.
* Switch the app to fullscreen mode
* Close the app.
