actually, it's an error that comes from a previous call. I manage it like 

    if (response_type == 0)
         xcb_generic_error_t *error;

         error = ev;
         printf ("error %d\n", error->error_code);

is it correct to cast the generic event to a generic error ?

In my case, I get 16 (bad length). Is it really bad ?
