I've been trying to write a small section of code in my program which

problems, after rewriting it about 5 or 6 times, I tried writing it in
straight gdk, and STILL got the problems.

I seem to get a segfault whenever I call gdk_display_close().  Here is a
rediculously simple example that gives the problem:

Glib::ustring disp = ":0.0";
GdkDisplay* gdisp = gdk_display_open(disp.c_str());
if (!gdisp) ...

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

The display is opening fine.  I'm running:

gtk: 2.8.17-1
glib: 2.10.2-1

(hmm, didn't notice that before,t he 2.8 vs 2.10 thing, could that be it?)

Anyway, I've spent all night trying to debug this and weeks trying to
sort this problem out in my program.  What is up with this, what can I

gdk_display_close has been fixed in GTK+ 2.10, which should  be
available soon.
