Actually, I'm not convinced that its 100% repeatable for me either.
I just went back to the original C++ versions (both the above
mentioned and the one in 
-- they seem to be identical except for comments), and I now get
behaviour identical to my Python versions.  Particularly the

X Error: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes) 8
  Extension:    157 (RENDER)
  Minor opcode: 4 (RenderCreatePicture)
  Resource id:  0x188

at the start.  I don't remember getting that 3 or 4 days ago when
I first tried it.  Oh well, I can't be sure, now ...
