Looks similar to the firefox/flash bug.   Do you have xserver running at
16bit color depth and flash plugin installed?  Also, using gdb to track
down X errors, it is suggested to use 'run --sync' otherwise your error
can return way after the problem has occurred.  The workaround for that
problem was to switch to 24 bit color depth, or export
XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1.  This may not even be related, but since it's
the exact error message, I thought I'd throw it out there...takes 10
seconds to try it.
