You have been subscribed to a public bug:

I am running Kubuntu 12.04 64-bit.

When I try to use Filezilla to connect to any remote server using the Filezilla site manager, Filezilla crashes with the error:

The program 'filezilla' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)'.
  (Details: serial 29595 error_code 3 request_code 152 minor_code 3)
  (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.)

This error occurres every time I try to connect to a remote site using the Filezilla site manager. However, if I try to connect to a remote site by manually entering my login data on the Quick connect  toolbar, Filezilla completes the connection without any problems.

I have tested this against FTP and SFTP sites and found both will
trigger the crash when using the site manager, but not when using Quick
Connect. I have also tried installing multiple versions of Filezilla
(3.4, 3.5.1, 3.5.3) and found the problem persists. This leads me to
believe the bug may be with X as much as with Filezilla itself.

Steps to reproduce:
1. open Filezilla
2. Open the site manager.
3. Select any remote site.
4. click "Connect"
5. Filezilla crashes

Steps to work around
1. open Filezilla
2. Enter connection data in the fields along the top of the application
3. Click "quick connect" button
4. Filezilla connects without crashing

I have tried removing my Filezilla configuration files and making new
site manager entries from scratch. The problem continues even with the
fresh configuration.
