Seems to be discussed and (hopefully) solved in the forums and
Seems to be some gdm issue.
I don't have Breezy installed, but something like this might work in
the meantime (if my assumtion of this being a problem with unmatched
strings in the X server resource database):
xrdb -q|grep -vie 'emacs.*WINDOW_FOREGROUND'|xrdb -load
If you get another X error, try replacing WINDOW_FOREGROUND with the
offending string in the command line above and retry.
Use "man xrdb" for more info on xrdb(1) options.
