zlib --with-system-png --enable-default-toolkit=gtk --enable-calendar --enable-x
ft --enable-crypto --enable-optimize=-O2 --enable-cpp-exceptions --enable-cpp-rt
ti

and this is on a up to dat RH8.0 box.

Reproducible: Always

2. 
3.

Actual Results:  
crash

Expected Results:  
not crash :)

Odd, because it does it for me, both at home and work.  I have tried the compile
my own on a stock RH8.0 box here at work and the GTK build at home on amodified
RH9.0 box  (mozilla-i686-pc-linux-gnu-gtk2-pango.tar.gz)  Now, maybe it is in
the gtk side of things because both of these builds use this flag.  Which build
are you using?

No crash for me with the latest trunk build or Mozilla 1.6 tested on RedHat 8.

I'll bet this is a dup of one of the usual "xft crashes when I use font XXX"
bugs.  Probably a .fon font or a file you can't read.  Mozilla 1.6 is a lot
harder to break in this regard.

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we

you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
