User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.2) Gecko/20040804 Netscape/7.2 (ax)
Build Identifier: thunderbird

I've been successfully running Fedora I for many months on my Thinkpad 770.

I don't remember doing anything to my system, but suddenly I can no longer run
Thunderbird (or Mozilla) nor even halt the system via the 'halt' command.

I suspect it's something wrong with 'X"


The message I get is as follows:


./thunderbird
(thunderbird-bin:2788): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: specified class size for type
`PangoXftFontMap' is smaller than the parent type's `PangoFontMap' class size
(thunderbird-bin:2788): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_new: assertion
`G_TYPE_IS_OBJECT (object_type)' failed
./run-mozilla.sh: line 451: 2788 Segmentation fault "$prog" ${1+"$@"}
[jdoutt@localhost thunderbird]$




Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Expected Results:  
started up browser
