[Bug 1266572] [NEW] gtk-window-decorator crashes randomly


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

After upgrading my three computers(home, work, laptop) to 13.10 from
13.04, gtk-window-decorator keeps crashing when running wine apps. The
crash happens mostly when opening a secondary window like a file
dialogue, or alert box. The crash can also happen by itself. If wine
programs are running, gtk-window-decorator cannot be restarted until the
wine programs are closed.

Error msg in terminal:
The program 'gtk-window-decorator' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)'.
  (Details: serial 5934 error_code 11 request_code 53 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.)
