X_QueryColors error when launching GUI  (18 Mar 2011)
(Linux)

Linux users may see color-related errors when launching a GUI such as ds9:

BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 91 (X_QueryColors)
Value in failed request: 0xff000000
Serial number of failed request: 1581 

The workaround is to set

setenv XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS 1
