I have a problem plotting simulation results in ADE GXL when accessing Cadence on a remote computer via ssh with X forwarding.
My simulations run OK, but when I plot the results a blank graph window appears and then my local X session freezes. I can't alt-ctrl-backspace or alt-ctrl-f2 out and have to do a hard restart to get the computer to respond again, although the mouse usually remains responsive. This doesn't happen if I VNC to the Cadence computer. Over VNC the results are displayed correctly and the session keeps going as normal.
Cadence version: IC188.8.131.520.6
Cadence installed under: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client release 5.8
My local computer: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation release 6.2
My graphics card: GeForce 310. Nvidia drivers 275.09.07.
X set up: 2 screens running separate x sessions spanned with Xinerama.
Has anyone had a similar problem? I've not been able to work out whether it's a problem with Cadence or with my X set up.
