    It works with Kubuntu 11.04 x86. Thank you.

    Segmentation fault
    Just for the record and the search engines:
    wxglade has the same issue on a fresh kubuntu 11.04 install.

    the mentioned fix partially works: Change the gtk theme to Raleigh and LEAVE IT THERE. Changing back to oxygen-gtk reintroduces the segfault.
