I noticed yesterday that all applications built with wxgtk crash at startup on my machine (xchm amule, wxvlc, etc). Example:

$ wxvlc
VLC media player 0.8.6d Janus
The program '.' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)'.
(Details: serial 205 error_code 11 request_code 147 minor_code 5)
(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.)

Additional info:
* package version(s) wxgtk: 2.8.7-1
This task depends upon
