Re: Changing the mail window's console

       Several messages about changing the mail window's console ...

    Does anyone have any suggestions or insight into this mystery?

Although I can't read the backtrace because the fonts got clobbered somewhere,
it looks identical to the errors I constantly get with X window consoles on
genera.  Almost always, re-trying the command works.  I have no idea why but
it's only a minor nuisance.  

I would say that every third time I try to start genera I get this error, and
that maybe twice a week I get this error selecting windows.  When starting
genera, I just c-c the Unix command and !! (roughly eq to c-m-y) it.

For others with UX's, remember to "ps aux | grep gen" every day to see what
homeless genera processes exist.

    A backtrace:
    (2 0 (NIL 0) (NIL :BOLD NIL) "CPTFONTCB")Error: The first argument (RASTER) to DECODE-RASTER-ARRAY, #<Indirect Drawable 922x874 at (0 0) in #<XLIB:WINDOW NERO:1 29360134> 2300216115>, was of the wrong type.
	   The function expected an array.
