Retrieve hidden X11 apps after Finder crashes
Authored by: Nem on Feb 21, '06 04:05:12PM

I should mention ... in my write-up above I stated that when the Finder crashed, this causes the problem to manifest itself. In further testing to replicate the problem, it is when the *Dock* crashes/dies/is killed, and not the Finder.

How are you crashing the Dock? Not to suggest that your hint is not potentially useful, but wouldn't a better solution be to identify the cause(s) of your problems with the Dock (or Finder)?

As to why the Dock is crashing? Well, its not just from crashing, but any restart of the Dock. It happened after I installed the 10.4.4 update (but before I rebooted). Also, I have my "Applications" and "Utilities" folders in my dock and often right-click or ctrl-click to run an app quickly. On rare occasion, I'll right click on Applications and the Dock will just die. 5 seconds later, I'll try the same thing, and it'll work perfectly.

I'm not sure if the problem is with the Dock or with X11, and most people will never notice the problem (unless they're like me, and running X11 with 4-6 xterms, several of which often sit in the Dock until I need them).
