Is there a known problem with the XGetImage() call under XFree 3.12 (ELF
version for Linux)? I'm encountering a problem with it where X freezes
up solid when XGetImage() is called, then comes back to life after several
seconds (this depends on the size of the image being copied...Getting a
300x300 chunk of a window causes X to lock up for ~5 seconds. A larger
area creates a longer delay. It does not matter if I link the X library
dynamically or statically.
Here's the platform I'm using:
P5-100 w/ #9 GXE 64 (2mb)
Linux 1.3.25 (ELF)
GCC 2.7.0 (ELF)
X11R6 3.12 (ELF)
Any help would be _greatly_ appreciated!
