Confirming, as Francesco has seen this happening before. X reports BadWindow in XGetWindowProperty.

Fixed in trunk, I believe. Needs more testing though, I still can't reproduce the X errors here. Francesco, when you get the chance to test trunk, please let me know how it goes.

I have uploaded a snapshot with the fix to our Snapshots PPA for quantal:
It is Onboard version 0.97.1+tr868-0ppa~quantal3 and probably also newer versions that might appear in the future.

Be aware that this version of Onboard is based on python3 and thus you will need version 0.61.0 of virtkey for it to work. This version is waiting for the Ubuntu developers to be reviewed and to be uploaded to the ubuntu quantal repositories. In the meantime, you can get it from my PPA:
