   Both the current OpenSuse 10.3 and Fedora 8 releases have
broken the ability to run the NMRDraw program from the
NMRPipe package (
The previous OpenSuse and Fedora releases had no problems with
this program but now it aborts with the error...

nmrdraw: xcb_io.c:285: _XAllocID: Assertion `!(dpy->flags & (1L << 3))' failed.

This program is linked as followed...

ldd nmrdraw =>  (0x00110000) => /usr/openwin/lib/ (0x00111000) => /usr/openwin/lib/ (0x00243000) => /usr/lib/ (0x0758c000) => /lib/ (0x00da4000) => /lib/ (0x002f6000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00294000) => /lib/ (0x00251000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00df1000) => /usr/lib/ (0x0025c000) => /lib/ (0x00dcf000)
        /lib/ (0x002d9000) => /usr/lib/ (0x0027a000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00df5000)

The openwin clients like oclock still run okay. I saw a thread which
might be related at...

Thanks in advance for any insights as this is a showstopper for NMR
