glines stack trace
Description of problem:
When glines is executed it receives a Segmentation fault. The game does not come up when run from the menu. I ran from the command line to see what was happening and received the Segmentation fault message.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Happens every time /usr/bin/glines is executed.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run /usr/bin/glines via menu or command line.
Game does not come up.
Game should come up and be ready to play.
I'm including a stack trace as an attachement. This was obtained using gdb.
Still broke, but getting rid of the computer where it is an issue.
Have confirmed that glines is still getting a segmentation fault on another install. This bug has been reported upstream at Gnome (see external tracker above) and at Ubuntu.
There is a patch proposed at ubuntu that solved the problem for me.

backtrace from glines seg fault
Changing version to Fedora 18. This is still a issue in gnome-games-glines-3.6.1-1.fc18.i686.
Hmm... gnome-games-glines.x86_64 1:3.6.1-1.fc18 seems to work fine here.
glines continues to receive a segmentation fault in the latest update.

Proposed Patch for F18
glines.c changes a little between F17 and F18. Here is the patch I have been using.
Closing, fixed in F19 with five-or-more-3.8.2-2.fc19.i686. Always happy to report problems and supply patches for myself.
