Public bug reported:

This is similar to Bug #115529, except that the fix posted there does
not work and the errors are different.

I start vnc4server, latest patched Feisty on intel 64, with -extension
XFIXES, Gnome environment.  I start a client looking at it.  I type
firefox.  Firefox dies.  Generally it dumps core.  Once it exited with
an X error, same one as in the referenced bug, but it's gone now and I
can't make it do that again.  It is 100% reproducible, on several
different machines and by about 5 different users.  It's been this way
since I switched to Ubuntu in the Spring (still on Feisty), so it's not
an issue that changed in the latest firefox update.
