running the gnubg debian version i get this:

(gdb) where
#0  0x000000000049ed4c in RenderPreferencesParam ()
#1  0x000000000044fb04 in CommandSetAppearance ()
#2  0x0000000000433bcd in HandleCommand ()
#3  0x0000000000433df6 in HandleCommand ()
#4  0x0000000000434086 in HandleCommand ()
#5  0x000000000043417b in HandleCommand ()
#6  0x00000000004397ea in CommandEval ()
#7  0x00002baaa3b40229 in scm_boot_guile () from /usr/lib/libguile.so.12
#8  0x0000000000431060 in main ()

my version from cvs is compiled without libguile support and it
doesn't crash. i am not sure what guile gives you, but i've been happy
without it. maybe you can try disabling guile support for now?
