Description of problem:
When playing gnibbles, with the 'levels in random order' option selected,
gnibbles will occasionally exit unexpectedly attempting to load a new level. The
message on the console is:
Ack! Couldn't load level file /usr/share/gnibbles/level000.gnl
It's reproducable consistently when playing many, many games. The levels are in
random order, you know :)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Gnibbles
2. Choose the levels in random order option
3. Play a couple hundred games
Actual Results: Game exits unexpectedly.
Expected Results: A new level should be loaded.
Hmm, is this an excuse to spend an entire day playing gnibbles? ;-)

Test patch to get rid of level 000
This patch is untested as I haven't figured much out about rpm yet, but it
seems to be the only place where current_level could be set to 0.
tmp = rand () % MAXLEVEL;
tmp = rand () % MAXLEVEL + 1;
This should be
+ tmp = rand () % (MAXLEVEL - 1) + 1;
Otherwise you remove 0, and add MAXLEVEL
MAXLEVEL is defined as 26 in the sources I have, and there is a level for it.
Other places in the source it does rand() % MAXLEVEL + 1, validly. It looks like
valid levels are 1-MAXLEVEL, inclusive.
Looking further, this bug seems to be a dup of bug 52900 at bugzilla.gnome.org.
Same trivial patch was submitted as fix by someone else, seems to be fixed now
Thanks for looking into this. We should have the fix in the next release, then.
