Comment 1 Paolo Maggi 2006-11-25 16:06:20 UTC
Thanks for taking the time to report this bug.
This particular bug has already been reported into our bug tracking system, but the maintainers need more information to fix the bug. 

If you are able to reproduce this bug easily, it would be very cool if you could provide us more information about the crash.
In particular we need a better stack trace since the one you attached is missing some elements that will help a lot to solve the problem.

Can you get us a stack trace with debugging symbols? Please see for more information on how to do so. 

Please, put the new stack trace in bug #354046

Thanks in advance!
