How (if posible) can I capture Bad Window events.  They just stop my program dead.  They will only happen once in a million years so I'm told but I would still like to capture them.

Thanks,  Tim.

Your window's event handler must catch all possible events,
using XNextEvent, XPeekEvent, IfEvent, CheckIfEvent, etc. etc. .
A lot of work for "once in a million years" :(
May be you can do it useing: XCheckMaskEvent, XCheckTypedEvent, XCheckWindowEvent, etc. etc. .

Thanks.  Catching all events slows it down just a tad but it maybe enough to talk my boss into letting the uncommon error go.
