Thanks for all the advice on this. I haven't had time to try and answer all your questions as I'd have to educate myself quite a bit to start with. But I did try installing glut3-7 and using it instead of freeglut. That allows my application to work better. No unexpected crashes so far and able to use remotely with just a couple of (hopefully) minor bugs. freeglut was what I found on our server, so I went with it first.

I thought that that was for fullscreen windows. I think that was from
Chris. Looking at glutFullScreen() now, it seems to use
XTRanslateCoordinates(). Maybe it was in gamemode... It's been about
a year I think. (^&

Vaguely.

If it has to do with fullscreen or gamemode, though, I wouldn't think
that this would be a likely problem, unless the arithmetic is simply
botched.

I assume that the application in question is closed source, but I'd
like to know more information about it. It would help to at least
know some things such as:

* Is it the only application that fails in this environment?
Or do other X apps fail? How about other freeglut apps?
What if he relinks with another GLUT?

* What library function is he calling when it fails?
A source debugger or printf() statements can locate this
pretty quickly. Is the library "current window" at that
time a top-level window or a subwindow?
