So it needs to be careful about simultaneous attempts to use xlib/server. Doing so will typically trigger a crash. Since gtk 2.16 I think (when it started using xlib more asynchronously but without documentation how so), e2's behaviour has been sporadically (but rarely) bad. Here I've seen several crashes in recent months, but have never been able to reproduce the behaviour so as to get a decent insight into what assumption is now invalid. So more feedback is welcome, it may help identify where to focus.
