Subject description: Seamonkey manifestation
 

Mr. Green

using the enclosed omya.jpg as a wallpaper background (using the stretch option)
in Dingo beta2 I am able to see directly into some sort of visual cache
(I had to restart x 3 times to get a plain wallpaper again)

The effect is quite cool - I enclose two 'ghosting' backgrounds that appeared . . . they seem to be leaking from Seamonkey browsing . . .
and have a tendency to change . . .

It seems that a visual cache is hovering between unreality and manifestation
The usual authorities have been informed . . . Wink

Update:
The ghosting is linked to Seamonkey crashing
Seamonkey seems to be crashing/slowing after 1 -2 hours of heavy usage
I restart X windows
- the wallpaper then changes . . .
Mantra info can be found here

Shocked Was it missing? Wink

I just found that restarting X
even when Seamonkey has not crashed
changes the background to include some
image from the Seamonkey cache of latest browsing

I am not quite sure what is going on
Could someone verify the effect
(A kindly ghost buster)
or suggest what possibly could be happening?

To me it seems unusual that two programs
Seamonkey and the wallpaper display
are interacting in some way . . .
What sort of code would do that?
What is the code that displays the wallpaper?
How is it combining with the Seamonkey cache?

@Lobster
Perhaps somewhere there is a crossover [symlink or misreading] between seamonkey cache and a temp cache, with temp being used before swap is activated, yes?
That would do it
Either that or maybe it's a video [or x] cache thing

Could be Aitch, Confused

I have noticed for years that when you close down Linux
it sometimes flashes up an image from the browser cache . . .
Now somehow it is combining with the wallpaper . . .

Death Quote of Oscar Wilde
"Either that wallpaper goes, or I do."

I am used to unusual hardware
I had a motherboard which only worked underclocked at 333mz
which I recently gave away

Most of my hardware is sanctified
and therefore priceless
. . . Mind you think how many tins of sardines I could buy

For now I will light a candle and chant nonsense
as it is always fun . . .
