If you run with `-sync', does it abort and does the core show the
call that's causing the problem? What's the output of xdpyinfo?
Does running with `-expertmode 20' cause the error too?
Otherwise, what's the output of xwininfo for the xdvi window?

I had a bug report about this before on Solaris but the user
wasn't able to track it down. It works for me on XFree/Linux.
