    Google is your friend;). A workaround in xview for this problem
has be around for awhile...

I see the same behavior under Fedora 8. I have any of the four calls
to XAllocID() in server.c of libxview succeed but a second call will
fail. The hack is to substitute a call to XAllocIDs to achieve all
four XAllocID() calls at once and eliminate the need for multiple
calls to XAllocID(). With this change, the openwin clients no longer
crash and nmrDraw behaves normally as well.
