Hi there!

I am no FreeBSD user, but while searching for a solution to my problem with 
xview, I see this has also been discussed on FreeBSD mailing lists [*]. A 
friend IS a FreeBSD user and she just confirmed that the bug still exists 
with xview-3.2.1_10 on FreeBSD 7.2-RELEASE-p4. To test, you need a 32 bit 
enviromment. Install xview-clients-3.2.1_4 and start cmdtool. You will get 
this error:

Assertion failed: (ret != inval_id), function _XAllocID, file 
xcb_io.c, line 378. Abort

For a simple solution that worked for me on my Gentoo Linux, see this Ubuntu 
bug report:

Hope this helps,
