Hi All,

With latest git st and latest git scrollback patch, I had 3 X crashes
this morning - X logs show too many attempts against something or
other (unfortunately Xorg.0.log gets over written). I haven't analysed
further, as I hate locking my lowly notebook up too often.

Rolling back to my custom build of xfce4-terminal, this doesn't happen.

To reproduce, use st with just the scrollback patch applied.

Start dwm, and then use nano to load a large(ish) file (like dwm.c),
and use the PgDn key to scroll down - after about 10 seconds, X locks
up - keyboard/mouse don't do anything.

Luckily I have bound a function key in acpihandler to shutdown cleanly
- that worked to get me out of a hard shutdown.

As I say, I am loathe to try to reproduce on my notebook.

"Gosh that takes me back... or is it forward?  That's the trouble with
time travel, you never can tell."
