Description From cendio 2013-04-15 17:23:19
After logging into a session an error report pops up telling the user that
xprop has crashed. Haven't tried to get any detailed explanation as to why, but
the offending command is apparently:

/opt/thinlinc/libexec/xprop -root 32x \ $0\\n_NET_SUPPORTING_WM_CHECK

The original report was for Ubuntu 13.04 Beta, but I also get this on Fedora
18.

Our ancient xprop is horribly buggy. It abort():s whenever a property doesn't
exist on a window. I'm amazed we haven't run in to this earlier.

The xprop in Fedora 18 works fine, so I think we'll just try an upgrade.

xprop upgraded in r27105.

Unable to reproduce using the new xprop on Ubuntu 13.04, so assuming that
upgrading it has solved the problem. Closing.
