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. -- P.J.
