Can't run the query browser as it crashes with segmentation fault. 

Intel P4 (x86) system with 2GB RAM.

added gdb to mysql-query-browser script:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

How to repeat:
run mysql-query-browser

Suggested fix:
Don't have any idea. Sorry. Can't build from source as I don't have gtkhtml 3.0 (Fedora is up to 3.9.5 at this time)

I was unable for to repeat on FC4. I know it isn't Rawhide but that installation
isn't in development stage?

It would seem I have the same problem; it gets a seg fault and gdb stops at the same point.

Kernel / CPU: Linux #5 PREEMPT i686 Intel(R) Pentium(R) III Mobile CPU      1133MHz GenuineIntel

Distribution: Arch Linux

I have a feeling it might be a library conflict, since Arch Linux is fairly bleeding edge if you keep your packages up to date (which I have). I'll attach a list of my installed packages in case it helps.

I'll also attach a gzip'd strace output of mysql-query-browser-bin (from modifying mysql-query-browser).

I forgot to mention that I've confirmed that it doesn't make a difference whether I compile from source or use a binary package (such as mysql-query-browser-1.1.18-linux-i386.tar.gz). They stop at the same point.

Also, I'm not allowed to attach any files - if needed I can open a related bug.

This is apparently the same bug as #15903 (for 1.1.17) for which someone has already posted a patch. It works for me (modified to work against 1.1.18).
