I've just upgraded to Ibex and cannot run monsterz anymore.

When I start it from the command line, this is the output:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/games/monsterz/monsterz.py", line 1998, in <module>
File "/usr/share/games/monsterz/monsterz.py", line 1993, in main
File "/usr/share/games/monsterz/monsterz.py", line 1271, in go
File "/usr/share/games/monsterz/monsterz.py", line 1381, in iterate_menu
File "/usr/share/games/monsterz/monsterz.py", line 1300, in copyright_draw
system.blit(scroll, (13, 437))
File "/usr/share/games/monsterz/monsterz.py", line 403, in blit
self.background.blit(surf, coords)
pygame.error: Surfaces must not be locked during blit

Any ideas what the problem is and how it can be solved?

Have done that already. No luck ...

The solution is described here: http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewvc/devel/monsterz/monsterz-0.7.1-blit-crash.patch?revision=1.1

Just edit the file /usr/share/games/monsterz/monsters.py (replace the lines with -, with those with +) and it should work!
