On my Windows Vista pc, I'm using Xming to connect to our Linux (Suse 11.2) server. I'm starting Eclipse (Galileo) remotely on the Linux server via Xming. All works fine but when I open the find/replace dialog (ctrl+f) several times, it keeps growing. Each time it opens, it shows a little larger. And there's no possibility to resize it.
When doing the same directly from the console of the Linux server, I don't see that problem. The dialog box remains the same size and it's possible to resize it.
When, after several ctrl+f, the size of the dialog becomes too large to use, I have to go to the server's console, open Eclipse and do a ctrl+f. Then, the size of the dialog box returns to its normal size. Restarting Eclipse again via Xming shows a normal sized dialog box (but growing again each time I do a ctrl+f).
Within Eclipse, I noticed that some other dialogs have the same behaviour (e.g. File Search) and others don't (e.g. Preferences)
I also did a test with OpenOffice, also remotely starting via Xming. In a document, when doing ctr+f, the size of the search dialog box remains the same size.

I'm not sure whether this is a problem related to Eclipse or to Xming ?
Anyone had the same experience ?

I actually had the same problem. The find window eventually swallowed my whole screen; had to memorize the keystrokes since the buttons were long gone. I believe this is related to xming, mostly because if you donate and get the latest version,, you can resize that window. The upgrade didn't solve my open-too-many-gedit-crashes-eclipse problems, but a $20 donation may be worth resizing that window, who knows.

Edit: Using the portable putty that you can get at the same time through a separate download seems to correct (haven't seen one yet) the putty crashing.
