ROX-Filer crashes itself, and crashes X when I start it
in my home directory, open "Goto" line by pressing "/"
and tipe ".". It happens every time, but only in my
home dir. and in some other directoryes of my system
(even not with hidden files beginnig with "."). And not
"work" in copies of that directoryes if another place.
There's no messages. Even in Xorg's log only message
about exiting by 11 signal. I move out my
~/.config/rox.sourceforge.net and configured it again
step-by-step, and found that it happens with option
"Default details" turn on, in all variants of details
(size, type, time etc.). And else it don't crashes when
I switching in "show hidden files" mode and back, by
pressing C-h or by pressing an icon, before open "Goto"
and looking for hidden files or those "bad" directoryes.

    X crashes generally mean there's a bug in the X server, so
    that would be the best place to report it. Perhaps something
    to do with fonts?

    See if you can reproduce it with Xnest, e.g.:

    $ Xnest -ac :1 &
    $ DISPLAY=:1 rox

    At least that way you may be able to reproduce the crash
    without logging yourself out! You can run Xnest with gdb,
    etc, to find out what happens. If Xnest doesn't crash, it's
    probably a bug in your X server's video driver.
