The GIMP problems



I can't draw anything in the gimp.  Lines don't show up, using the pencil,
brush, or other drawing tools.  The spline tool does lines, but when I
switch over to pencil or brush, etc., the lines disappear.  I get some
messages, including 

** WARNING **: XGetWindowProperty failed

This message I got the first time I tried to start up gimp on this session.
Subsequent attempts got these messages (and so on):

** ERROR **: sigsegv caught

I wasn't running Netscape.  I had started emacs between the two invocations
of the Gimp.

I reinstalled gimp 0.99.14-1 and the gimp-data-extra, gimp-data-min, and
gimp-non-free packages of this version.  I also installed the up-to-date
libgtk1. 

I am using x11 3.3.1 with a matrox millenium.  I have been having some
freaky problems with the SVGA server, streaks and lines dancing on the
screen.  I am now wondering if there is a problem with my X11 installation.
Alot of the x11 problems seemed to happen after the first time I started up
uxing xdm.  The character of the screen is way different (not just colors)
when I start up with xdm.  

Thought these might be related?

I am sending to the users list, even thought I am using a pretty nearly
completely hamm system.
