The program 'ChipsServer' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'GLXUnsupportedPrivateRequest'.

Running ChIPS remotely can produce an X error such as:

The program 'ChipsServer' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'GLXUnsupportedPrivateRequest'.
   (Details: serial 72 error_code 163 request_code 150 minor_code 17)
   (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
    that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
    To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
    option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
    backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.) 

Workaround:

Use

setenv LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT
