Comment 2 Owen Taylor 2009-11-09 15:42:24 EST
Is this reproducable? Can you repeat it after doing 'debuginfo-install desktop-effects' (debuginfo-install is in the yum-utils package)
Comment 3 Michael J. Ayers 2009-11-09 23:30:08 EST
100% reproducable.  Crashes every time I start it no matter what modules I have loaded.  Looking through much of the error logs I am leaning towards thinking this is an issue with the vboxvideo driver module.  I'll do a debuginfo run tomorrow and see what that will turn up.

Comment 5 Owen Taylor 2010-06-23 09:31:13 EDT
In the case where glXChooseVisual() fails, an uninitialized value for context is passed to glXDestroyContext(), which is almost certainly triggering this crash.
