Hello Jeff,

you have not yet responded to aur�lien's query below. It would be
important for us to have a copy of the directory so that we can reproduce
the problem on our side. Please provide it if you have it moved (instead
of removed) or if you can grab it in a backup.

It looks like the current version of .frozen-bubble/rc is identical to  
the version found by ext3grep. So, I guess the answer is no, I don't  
have a version that would reproduce the problem.

Nevertheless, I've attached the version that ext3grep found.
I am unable to reproduce the problem with your version of the
configuration file.

However, looking more closely at your initial bug report, it seems that
you are using an amd64 kernel on an i386 installation. There is a know 
kernel bug (#518921) for the version you are using, that *may* explain
your problem. However it only occurs if you have libc6-i686 *not* 
installed. Do you know if this package was installed or not when you had
the problem (hint: you could have a look at /var/log/dpkg.*)?



The segfault has returned. I removed the .frozen-bubble directory and it did not resolve the segfault.
I'm pretty sure that libc6-i686 /was/ installed when I filed the original report. During the various investigation phases, the library was removed. I reinstalled it a moment ago and it did not resolve the segfault.

I've removed libc6-i686 and frozen-bubble. I think we've spent enough time on this and haven't been able to reproduce it on any system but this one.

You mention amd64 kernel on an i386 installation. I'm not sure how that happened, or if it is a problem. The only thing that doesn't work on this system is powersaved, and that seems to be related to it not being a 64 bit app. I run Eclipse, Firefox, mplayer (although mplayer/testing segfaults), kde, realplayer, acroread...

Anyway, thanks for your time.
