The Linux build crashes on startup looking for fonts.  This is on a machine
using the Xaccel server, but I hear that a machine with XFree86 saw a hang that
sounded like the same problem.  This happened in the last 24 hours, so I'm
cc'ing people who have made checkins which look like they could possibly be

One additional comment: for test0.html it's looking for the font
"*-Verdana-*-*-normal--*-*-75-75-*-*-*", which isn't on my machine, but if I
start up pointing at mozilla.org it crashes in the same place looking for
"*-Times-*-*-normal--*-*-75-75-*-*-*", which is on my machine.  So it's not an
issue of whether the font exists or not; it's something about how we're calling

I can read test0.html... i'm building without pthreads, egcs 1.0.3,
with-static-gtk and i can partially get www.netscape.com to layout (with some
resizing finagling). http://www.mozilla.org crashes, though. Here's the stack:

akkana's problem seems like either a bug in the X server or in the way fonts are
being interrogated. Apparently this only happens with certain X servers.
The offending code (in nsDeviceContextGTK.cpp) is merely trying to establish if
the passed font family is present on the system.

Reassigning to ramiro.

This seems to be a gtk dependancy problem.  I dont think its a mozilla problem.
I built with the latest cvs gtk and the browser seems to be at least as good (or
bad) as yesterday.

Im working on solving the dependancy problem.

It's not an Xaccel problem.  I switched to XFree86 and I still see the same
crash.  Might still be a gtk 1.1.9 problem; odd that it doesn't happen with
either 1.1.6 or 1.1.12.

Interestingly, I don't crash if I run with the display pointed at an Irix box
instead of directed to the local Linux machine.

It was a gtk 1.1.9 problem after all!  I downgraded to 1.1.7 and the problem
went away.

Changing summary and closing bug since this clearly seemed to be a gtk 1.1.9
