I (just barely, as a non programmer) know the differences between
foo.c, foo.o, foo.h, foo.a files but I got carried away (non thinkingly)
by the error messages:

  Gdk-CRITICAL **: file gdkfont.c: line 174 (gdk_font_id): assertion
  `font != NULL' failed.

However what has `gdkfont.c' got to do with it in THIS context?

I have just made the libglade-0.4-SNAP and libglade-devel-0.4-SNAP rpm's
and recompiled R-0.65.0. The same thing happens with `R --gnome', namely:
Segmentation fault (core dumped), with the same error messages.

So the culprit is not libglade but maybe `gnome-libs-1.0.12-1' given that
you both have an earlier gnome-libs. Or maybe even something else.

I am not going to pursue this further as it takes too much time. I was just
curious how the R gnome interface had progressed.

Thank you both very much for taking the time to respond.

Should I report it as a bug or is it not worth it given the
`moving target' status of the gnome libs and the `work in progress'
status of the R gnome interface?
