Hi All,

This morning I updated Apple X11 for MAcOSX to beta3 and now when I use 
an EMBOSS program does require X11 I get the following error:

Error in XCreatePixmap: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window 

I recompiled the whole EMBOSS suite with the new AppleX11beta3 SDK but 
I get the same error. Can someone explain... Is it a problem with Apple 
X11. It used to work fine before. All the other X11 applications seem 
to work fine with the beta3.
