JDS Applets May Exit Unexpectedly (SunAlert 102039)
By uejio on Feb 13, 2006
Just finished getting the last patch released for Sun Alert 102039, JDS applets may exit unexpectedly.
This affects Gnome 2.6 on Solaris 9 on x86 and JDS for Solaris 10 (both Sparc and x86). The root cause was a fix to the Xserver/Xlib to return an XError for certain large requests which the panel applets were incorrectly making. So, if you have the latest Xserver patches for Solaris 10, (patches 119370-09 or 119371-09 or greater) and you are using JDS as your desktop, then you should probably install the patches to a gnome-panel library for this Sun Alert.
