cannot click on iceweasel and select text on a console
I was using LXDE. Trying Claws-mail, a compiled version of evoultion, lxde terminals and iceweasel.
These errors were shown in tty1, where I launched Xs:
lxpanel...: Gdk-CRITICAL .... 'GDK_IS_WINDOW (window)' failed.
lxpanel...: GLib-GObject-CRITICAL .... 'G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed.
The result was:
1. I couldn't longer select text in the terminal with the mouse, but i could change between windows/terminals and entering commands.
2. Iceweasel didn't answer to anything, only to killall -9. If I launched it again, it was freezed also in the restore tabs initial page, and I had to kill it by terminal again.
I killed X and when I started LXDE again everything was working fine again.

Probably the title of this bug I reported should be more generic, since it seems related to Gdk and no application specific.
I can add than although when the bug is manifested (which no return to a stable desktop) and the mouse starts becoming unuseful, you can yet use the keyboard shortcuts of the desktop without problems.
