xinput create-master fails after adding fifth master
Submitted by Han Boetes

Here on my ubuntu 12.04 server station I have 9 touchscreen monitors. And they all need a separate pointer and cursor. So I use xinput create-master for each window and to my surprise I get this output:
$ xinput create-master s1 $ xinput create-master s2 $ xinput create-master s3 $ xinput create-master s4 $ xinput create-master s5 X Error of failed request: BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation) Major opcode of failed request: 146 (XInputExtension) Minor opcode of failed request: 43 () Serial number of failed request: 24 Current serial number in output stream: 25
I've asked various people to repeat the issue and they all have the same, some at the seventh and some at the fifth master creation.
Please provide a fix for this issue.
