I have a gtkmm application in which there is a running waveform widget (custom of course) which draws a waveform from left to right and in real-time. I feed data to the widget from a timer, which is then stored inside the widget until it is drawn. The drawing operation is triggered from another process (a thread).
When I test the setup in my target (a DirectFB based system), it all goes well. But in my machine (X11) it crashes with the following backtrace
<My_App_Name>: xcb_lock.c:33: _XCBUnlockDisplay: Assertion `xcb_get_request_sent(dpy->xcb->connection) == dpy->request' failed.
Locking assertion failure. Backtrace:

Any idea what going on?
Also when I draw to a surface from another process (which did not create the surface), is there anything else I should be doing. I am using cairo for all my drawing needs.
