Description of problem:

I'm running Fedora 9 on a Lenovo Thinkpad T43P.  I've seen emacs crash four times in the last three weeks.  It seems to happen when running GNUS and fetching e-mail over IMAP, although that may not have anything to do with it.  It just happened again this evening.  I saw this in my .xsession-errors file:

How reproducible:

Run emacs.  I start it from a button on the panel.  Run GNUS.  Fetch e-mail over IMAP and see if emacs crashes.  This is very intermittent, and it works most of the time.  It seems to fail more often shortly after a reboot.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug. This bug report isn't very
useful because it is incomplete. You'll need to add a full stack trace; please make sure you have debuginfo packages installed and see http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/StackTraces for more information about getting a useful stack trace.
Thank you.

I've upgraded to FC10 and the bug no longer occurs.  So I'll close it.
