xscreensaver-3.17-5 from 6.1/Alpha with unwavering regularity
leaves core files.  When checked with 'gdb -core core' they provide
the following information:


Core was generated by `rd-bomb -root'.
Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.

warning: Hit heuristic-fence-post without finding

warning: enclosing function for address 0x120002ee8
This warning occurs if you are debugging a function without any symbols
(for example, in a stripped executable).  In that case, you may wish to
increase the size of the search with the `set heuristic-fence-post'

Otherwise, you told GDB there was a function where there isn't one, or
(more likely) you have encountered a bug in GDB.
#0  0x120002ee8 in ?? ()


It is always 'rd-bomb'.  It looks like an apt name. :-)

I can't reproduce this with xscreensaver-3.23-3 from Raw Hide;
it runs without problems. Then again, the rd-bomb code hasn't
changed. Does the rd-bomb from Raw Hide work for you?
