[abrt] crash in free42-1.4.66-1.fc12: raise: Process /usr/bin/free42dec was killed by signal 6 (SIGABRT)

abrt 1.0.9 detected a crash.
Attached file: backtrace
reason: Process /usr/bin/free42dec was killed by signal 6 (SIGABRT)
release: Fedora release 12 (Constantine)
I had run the calculator from the command line, and from its menu item in the accessories menu without poroblems!
However, when I created a menu item in my own frequently used menu, it crashed the first time I clicked on the menu item!
How to reproduce
1.created menu item
2.clicked on menu item
Created attachment 412975 [details]
The backtrace shows that the error occurs in XmuClientWindow, but I can't reproduce it. I've added a free42 launcher to the Gnome panel, and that works fine. I'm not sure how to create "my own frequently used menu", so I haven't tried that. I seem to recall that earlier versions of the Gnome panel had an easy way to add a new empty menu to the panel or to an existing menu, but I can't find it now.

: should work with any desktop environment that uses this specification.
When I clicked on the item the second time, it worked with no apparent problems!
alacarte is so buggy for me that I am unable to create the menu item; in fact, it is so buggy that I can't even figure out how to write a reasonable bug report for it. "It is not even wrong", as Wolfgang Pauli famously said.
Anyhow, since I can't reproduce it and apparently it now works for you, I'm closing the bug. If you can get it to happen again, please reopen it.
