[wingide-users] X-Windows problem

Since my office machine is much faster than my laptop at home, I  
tried running WingIDE over an ssh connection with X11 forwarding.  
Unfortunately, I did not have much success:

Gdk-ERROR **: The program 'wing.py' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)'.
   (Details: serial 63 error_code 3 request_code 38 minor_code 0)
   (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()  
Abort trap

I can run other X11 applications without problem, so X11 forwarding  
definitely works. Does anyone have an idea of what is happening here?

BTW, I use WingIDE 2.1.4 under MacOS 10.4.9 on both machines.
