Is xfig a GTK application? xfig causes very reliable crashes (SEGFAULT) for me when trying to access the menus. I found this so annoying, since I'm in the process of drawing floor plans to a new house, so I found a way to make xfig run without crashing: by starting X with startx and having xfig as the only app in ~/.xinitrc...
Thunderbird is also a reliable source for the crash for me, when moving the mouse over the message frame in mails from a certain source (a newsmail from a mobile phone news site).
Oh well, it looks like the source of the problem has been found, so a fix is eminent.
BTW: what WM is everyone using? I've seen a few mention KDE, but can't recall seeing others mentioned. I use KDE4.
