Description Mark Buechler 2016-12-21 20:15:31 UTC
I recently upgraded Xquartz to fix a problem with it listening for remote connections. That's fix, however, if I prepend a remote fontserver, clients hang trying to retrieve fonts and eventually fail. I downgraded Xquartx to 2.7.8 to temporarily resolve my issue.

Please attach a spindump focused on the server when in the hung state.

I've seen this in a custom Xserver on Linux, built with libXfont 1.5.4.

Looks like the cause is this change: 

I think authlen needs rounding up in the calculation for crac.length.

Something like:  
        crac.length = (sizeof (fsCreateACReq) + ((authlen + 3) & ~0x3)) >> 2;
