    Sequence of events / commands:

    I started kdevelop and loaded the project file.
    B.t.w. kdevelop issues a warning on startup, since I'm not sure
    whether this is related to the problem I'm mentioning it here to be on te
    safe side:

    KCharset: Wrong charset!
    KCharset: Wrong charset!
    Using filler
    Colortype 6 is rgb/alpha

    Then I rebuild the project.
    I then started xxgdb and opened the newly build executable.
    After pressing the run button this resulted in the following:

    Warning: cannot allocate colormap entry for "snow1"
    Warning: cannot allocate colormap entry for "snow2"
    Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
    0x40120000 in _XimProtoWireToEvent () from /usr/X11R6/lib/

    The stack info I got from xxgdb looks like this:

    (xxgdb) info stack
    #0 0x40120000 in _XimProtoWireToEvent () from /usr/X11R6/lib/
    #1 0x40197f66 in _IO_vfprintf (s=0x4023ffc0, format=0x4007c9f4 "%s%s\n",
    ap=0xbffff5f8) at vfprintf.c:1029
    #2 0x4019ff47 in fprintf (stream=0x4023ffc0, format=0x4007c9f4 "%s%s\n") at
    #3 0x40071a74 in P_errmsg () from /usr/lib/
    #4 0x400370a2 in fl_init_colormap () from /usr/lib/
    #5 0x4003d217 in fl_initialize () from /usr/lib/
    #6 0x80566fc in main (argc=1, argv=0xbffff9e4) at vocode.c:6001

    To my surprise I've not been able to replicate the crash with the
    same error message that lead me to starting this thread:
    SIGSEV in _XKeyTable() in /usr/X11R6/lib/

    but the line
    #4 0x400370a2 in fl_init_colormap () from /usr/lib/
    to me suggests that this one is still related to the initial problem.

    Hope this helps.
