Yesterday's change "* src/Makefile.am: fix build without dbus". Seems to have had almost the opposite of the intended effect.
Previously, I did *not* have the dbus-x11 package installed, but I could compile and run xvidcap on my system (Kubuntu 8.04 - Hardy Heron, AMD64) with no problems.
After this 2007-12-16 patch, the program *still* compiles fine, but I get the crash below when running it. Installing the dbus-X11 package makes the problem go away, but (if I understood the changelog correctly) dbus shouldn't really be necessary?
