Jens and I had some private emails on this issue.
We found the problem only exists in 6.1, and the same program
works fine in 6.2beta. Apparently, something in 6.2beta fixed it.

Thanks for the suggestion - but it does not seem to be a memory problem as I
got 70 MB free (reported by “pidin info”) when it happens.
I also realized that it does not seem to be related to bitmap displaying -
it also happens with other dialogs. The program gets killed when
QDialog::exec() is called.

I usually see “client killed” message when I ran out of memory.
maybe you are short of that?

I am using XFree86 4.2 and Qt3 from sourgeforge and I am getting
“fatal IO error: client killed” from my Qt application. It seems to happen
when I am displaying bitmaps (QLabel pixmap) in my application. It only
happens very rarely (one out of ~100 times).
I looked into the Qt source and found that the above error is outputted
the X fatal IO error handle (setup with XSetIOErrorHandler()).
It does not seem to happen under XPhoton, so I might have to go back to
XPhoton if I can’t figure this out.
