    While I've learned to ignore most .xsession-errors, this one caught my eye. In full:
    (firefox-bin:2130): Gdk-WARNING **: XID collision, trouble ahead.

    I'm not noticing any problems with firefox or my system. Does anyone have an idea what this may be? Google turns up nothing of value.

    Edit: A little bit more googling and it is a known bug. While some seem to experience crashes because of it many don't. Some are also complaining of it filling up their logs (I must have 30 entries in a row). Still don't know what it means.

    Thanks GlobalForce. That sheds a little more light on it. Funny, but I ran FF from the console, went to youtube but did not see any further warnings. I don't know why I occasionally open .xsession-errors when I am having no problems. I should know better by now.

    I get hordes of operapluginwrapper errors with dmesg but so far no harm done.
