I am trying to run Emacs remotely after 'ssh -X' to a remote system.
Emacs looks okay and I can maneuver and type normally - however
when I try
to select a line or two to delete, using my cursor and track pad,
and I get the following error:
X protocol error: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) on protocol
Try 'ssh -Y' instead of 'ssh -X'. The newer version of Os X
comes with a newer version of OpenSSH, which defaults to more
restrictive limits on what X11 operations it will forward.
Using '-Y' gets back the old behavior.
