RasMol> X Error of failed request:  BadAccess (attempt to access private
resource denied)  Major opcode of failed request:  129 (MIT-SHM)  Minor
opcode of failed request:  3 (X_ShmPutImage)  Serial number of failed

Before printing this error message, a gray window briefly appears and
dissappears. I read a whole chapter on Xwindows, but still couldn't find a
