Title: Netscape can fail to display the result of online documentation searches

ID: 17011

Product: LispWorks, LispWorks for Linux
Version: All
OS: All Unix platforms

Description: Under some system configurations, nothing appears to happen when using the items on the Help menu of the LispWorks IDE if a Netscape browser is already running.

The problem is that Netscape fails to be notified correctly and emits a message like

netscape-communicator: root window has no children on display :0.0

on the console (or where LispWorks was started).

This appears to be a bad interaction between Netscape and KDE and has been observed on Mandrake 8.0.
