Default gnome-terminal not starting - FX5200 FC6 1.0-9626

All,

I just did a fresh install of Fedora Core 6 on my workstation and I'm having some issues. Gnome-terminal will not start when I use Xinerama. I receive the following error:

The program 'gnome-terminal' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)'.
(Details: serial 105 error_code 2 request_code 78 minor_code 0)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

If I run X with a single monitor, gnome-terminal works as expected. I'm not sure where to look from here. I have an strace of the process if anyone would like to take a peek.

I've attached my xorg.conf. Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks,
Flux.

Bug report attached.

Thanks,
Flux.

EDIT: PS. I looked through the bug log and noticed something about SELinux. FYI, SELinux is disabled right now via 'setenforce 0' X wouldn't start at all with SELinux enabled.

UPDATE:

I reconifgured X with:

nvidia-xconfig --twinview

and now gnome-terminal is working as expected. I've attached the new xorg.conf

I'm happy with these settings, but am willing to do more troubleshooting if needed.

Thanks,
Flux.

Disabling the Composite extension (in xorg.conf) should work around this bug.

Thumbs up Re: gnome-terminal not starting - Ubuntu 6.10

I had the same problem with GNOME-Terminal 2.16.1 in Ubuntu 6.10 "Edgy Eft" with Nvidia driver 1.0-9746 (x86_64) using Xinerama.

Netllama's solution worked for me. I disabled the Composite extension by adding the following lines to /etc/X11/Xorg.conf:
Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "false"
EndSection

Yep, I've got the same issue in FC6 Nvidia MX 400 1.0-9231 using xinerama for two displays one AGP card one PCI card. Disabling composite fixes gnome-terminal.
