is xdvi broken?
my desktop system: amd64, Debian 9, xfce, Emacs 24, TeXLive, xdvi
While using xdvi to view a LaTeX document being written with Emacs, the
display keeps jumping from the Emacs window to the xdvi window.
The behaviour persists even after the xdvi window is closed; while in
Emacs I suddenly am looking at the document in the xdvi window.
Several xfce launchers (synaptic and midnight commander) never have
worked, but others work properly.
Once or twice a week it seems that the desktop is not working quite
right with the workspace switcher, but I have not been able to discern a
pattern. When I restart the computer, things appear to work properly
Is xdvi broken? Or can it be that there is a failure in the
motherboard or the memory of this system? Or can the hard drive be the
culprit? The hardware is more than five years old, but the computer is
the newest machine I have.
