Maybe you should try to compile with debugging on and run it from GDB. In
my experience XForms doesn't trap all errors (for example, a simplistic
one is resizing with fl_place_geometry() a nonexistent form). This causes
a segfault in one of the XForms internal functions which you wouldn't see
if you don't have the stack traceback.
