After upgrading from 1.0rc to 1.0rc2 on FreeBSD-
CURRENT, trying to start fluxbox results in a
coredump.

The backtrace is attached and also viewable at

http://www.scottro.net/fluxrc2bt.txt

This problem does not occur on FreeBSD-STABLE.

At least one other person had the problem, mentioned
on FreeBSD forums, however at time of writing,
bsdforums is temporarily down.

Thank you for any assistance with this.

    make sense
    Abort trap" <X quickly dies> on FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE #0
    After an upgrade today

    My gosh, that was quick. Yes, the patch fixed the problem
    and the FreeBSD fluxbox port maintainer has been notified.

    Thank you very much.
