Can you get a backtrace for this? maybe run it in gdb and type 'bt'
after it crashes?
I will try and post the result here.
Here the results of gdb:
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x400c5cec in vt_draw_text () from /usr/lib/libzvt.so.2
Hope that helps :-)
Also what version of gnome-libs are you using?
The version of gnome-libs is 22.214.171.124-2
Please try the latest 1.4.x release of gnome-libs and gnome-core.
*** Bug 85236 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
This looks related to bug 77800. Both are dying in zvt_shutdown_subshell.
Could you try the latest gnome-libs and gnome-core and see if that helps?
Can you still see this crash with gnome-libs-1.4.2 and gnome-core-1.4.1?
No feedback. Closing.
