thanks for fixing this, but did somebody investigate why kernel 2.4 dealt so badly with this segfault, and whether 3.1r2's 2.4 kernels have this fixed? That issue is largely more worrying to me than the previous xdialog's SEGV on 2.6 :/
What was different about one kernel's segv than another?


The SEGV on 2.4 was, contrary to when happening on 2.6, killing the system or mostly so, as described by the submitter (and explaining the critical severity). In my test, I couldn't confirm that the system wasn't completely dead. I rebooted before 5 minutes, but the box seemed completely crashed.
