[OpenJDK 2D-Dev] Where/Why are X11 errors caught?

When working on the XRender pipeline I always wondered why X11 errors
did not abort java.
Eg. for small test programs written in C the application aborts when a
"BadMatch" error occurs, with the X11 pipeline I don't even see the
error - it just does not work.

Is there any way to get the errors reported somehow?
Currently my pipeline does not work on solaris as intended and maybe
this way I would be able to find the cause.

Thanks in advance, Clemens
