[dev] [dwm] BadAtom error

From: <helma_AT_in-silico.ch>

Running the example code at the bottom of
https://github.com/wedesoft/hornetseye-xorg results in the following

X Error of failed request: BadAtom (invalid Atom parameter)
  Major opcode of failed request: 18 (X_ChangeProperty)
  Atom id in failed request: 0x0
  Serial number of failed request: 10
  Current serial number in output stream: 11

The same code works well with wmii and fluxbox window managers.
Strangely enough it works also from time to time with dwm, but I have no
idea how to reproduce these working conditions. Never had problems with
other X applications under dwm.

I have been able to track the following code
The error is raised by

  m_wmProtocols = XInternAtom( display->get(), "WM_PROTOCOLS", False );


Unfortunately I am completely clueless when it comes to X programming
and would appreciate any help to solve this issue.
