Okay. Inserting "GTK_CLIST(clist)->row_list->prev = NULL;" after each call
to gtk_clist_sort() seems to do the trick for now.

Good to hear that this point is being dealt with.

I tried it and think it's definitely useful. Thanks for the pointer.

I'll take your word for that. I guess I was just getting a little
frustrated, as I only started hacking on GNOME applications and already
had two crashes because of bugs in gnome-libs 1.2.x and now one because of
this problem with GTK 1.2.8. It seems Murphy's Law applied here.

I'll do this the next time (and probably, it's going to be my own mistake
then ;).
