    This is normal and more or less documented behavior, though I agree
    that an application crashing is probably the Wrong Thing.

    Your main loop should look like

            for(;;) {

                FL_OBJECT *obj = fl_do_forms();
                XEvent xevent;

                if ( obj == FL_EVENT )
                    fl_XNextEvent( &xevent );
