    My mistake. The problem appears to lie in xview. I am using the same
srpm based on the current debian xview packages that works fine with
Fedora 6 and 7. The clock and textedit openwin clients both crash with
the same error...

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

The backtrace appears as...

#0  0x00110402 in __kernel_vsyscall ()
#1  0x0031f690 in raise () from /lib/
#2  0x00320f91 in abort () from /lib/
#3  0x0031893e in __assert_fail () from /lib/
#4  0x075cc599 in _XAllocID () from /usr/lib/
#5  0x001d1e0b in server_init () from /usr/openwin/lib/
#6  0x002237d4 in xv_create_avlist () from /usr/openwin/lib/
#7  0x00223980 in xv_create () from /usr/openwin/lib/
#8  0x00225507 in xv_init () from /usr/openwin/lib/
#9  0x0804ca36 in init_clck ()
#10 0x0804d4fc in main ()

Hopefully someone here has xview installed and can take a glance
at the problem.
