Comment 8 for bug 41056

hi matt

Interesting; qiv had been working fine for me for ages, on warty, hoary,
> breezy, dapper and edgy,

i use qiv since the beginning, and it's started to fail with my fresh dapper
upgrade. (one week before the final release)

but recently stopped working with the same

now, i still have the gdk-error, but i'm pretty sure it made a "seg fault"
in the past (because it was a copy/paste of the error)
Sorry for this response, i can't reproduce the segfault ... now i still have
the gdk-error, but i use the workaround to bypass the trouble ...
sorry i can't help more
