120 <para>The <application>libxcb</application> developers have decided
121 to be strict in asserting locking bugs in X11 applications. This is
122 different than the behavior of <application>libX11</application> when
123 used on its own, and it will cause some applications to crash when
124 they previously did not. When an application has these types of bugs,
125 it will crash with the following assertion:</para>
126
127<screen><literal>xcb_xlib_lock: Assertion `!c->xlib.lock' failed.</literal></screen>
128
129 <para>An environment variable, <envar>LIBXCB_ALLOW_SLOPPY_LOCK</envar>,
130 can be set which will allow the locking bugs to not crash the
131 application. It is a workaround that is known to be needed in a few
132 cases. If it is found that these bugs affect an application in use, add
133 the following to your system or personal profile:</para>
134
135<screen><literal>export LIBXCB_ALLOW_SLOPPY_LOCK=1</literal></screen>
