Hmm, apparently python bug. I am going to assign to Dave if he can investigate the problem.
Comment 3 Dave Malcolm 2010-06-22 09:19:05 EDT
Thank you for reporting this bug.

How reproducible is this problem?  If you run the program from a terminal, is an error message printed?

What is the output of running the following command?
  rpm -q gtk2 libxcb 

Looking at the backtrace, it looks like an assertion failed inside frame 3 of the program's single thread inside _XAllocID:
  python: xcb_io.c:385: _XAllocID: Assertion `ret != inval_id

xcb is failing to allocate a graphic-rendering context for some reason, and that's why the process exits.

Reassigning component from "python" to "libxcb";  hopefully the libxcb maintainer will be able to figure this out further or reassign to a more appropriate component.

abrt backtrace doesn't tell me libX11 or libxcb versions, can't really help with this.
