Description Bill Nottingham 2006-08-23 16:54:18 UTC
When running gnucash-2.0, guile segfaults.


Install gnucash from http://people.redhat.com/notting/gnucash/2.0/RHEL-4/x86_64
(note: do *not* install the guile in that directory); gnucash will crash on
startup deep in the guile interpreter.

This issue is fixed in guile-1.6.7.

I don't really expect we're going to run out and fix this - feel free to close
this as DEFERRED or NEXTRELEASE. I'm mainly filing this for reference purposes
in case someone else runs into it.
