mozilla 0.9.5 crashes

Description of problem:
Mozilla 0.9.5 from mozilla.org (the rh7 rpm)
crashes when run...
[Tester@TesterTop Tester]$ mozilla
Gdk-ERROR **: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
serial 1022 error_code 2 request_code 12 minor_code 0
I dont know who to blame... maybe gtk/gdk is guilty?
rpm --rebuild of the 0.9.5 src.rpm on RH7.2 cures it
Ok.. it did work..
Would be nice if redhat or mozilla.org provided one... It took more than 2 hours
to compile on my p3-800 w/ 256 megs of ram...
Simply rebuilding and upgrading the package was insufficient in my case. Files,
ether put in by anaconda or part of the mozilla 0.9.2 package or left over from
redhat 7.1 (when I hadn't even installed mozilla), left in the /usr/lib/mozilla
directory, caused 0.9.5 to segfault immediately upon start up. Steps that I
undertook to upgrade mozilla were as follows:
1. rpm -e --nodeps mozilla
3. rm -rf /usr/lib/mozilla
2. rpm -Uvh mozilla-0.9.5-1.rpm
Mozilla 0.9.5 now works fine.
