The X Window graphics, generated by the kernel when the DISPLAY
environment variable is set, are handled by a MathLink program called
motifps.  

motifps has crashed or exited for some reason either before or during
the time when the kernel is attempting to write data to motifps.

If this problem is reproducible, you may want to send an example  to
Technical Support (support at wolfram.com) with the license number
(obtained by evaluating $LicenseID in the kernel) so that they can
attempt to characterize the bug.
