Can you do a clean install with a fresh profile and disable all extensions?

Works for me on 20031109 build on WinXP. 
Please try to reinstall, create a fresh profile (delete the old .phoenix-folder)
and try iz without any additional extensions and themes.

Please all note that the problem is reported for Linux, not Windows!

I will try to delete the phoenix folder and try again. But I have no extensions
installed nor any themes.

Did delete phoenix folder and retry without success...

I have isolated the problem on the GTK2/XFT version for Linux.

The problem does not occur when using the other version.

Comment 7

I have finally pinpointed the cause of this bug.

It is (at least in this case) due to the font named 'lucida sans unicode' which
is a composed name (multiple words). This makes Firebird crashes.

I have tried with quotes " or ' . Same result. It just won't take it.

This should be fixed quickly now. Could you confirm.

This is working fine on my system.  Odds are it's a dup of one of the mostfreq
xft bugs.  What distro and version are you running firebird on?
