64bit F10 with 64bit installer works ok, seams like problem is only with 32bit version

Note that another person on our team was able to reproduce the problem:

"I managed to get both the glibc2.2 and glibc2.3 versions from enterprise.mysql.com to segfault upon start."

So that means 1 customer and 1 internal person experience the problem, but another internal person was successful.

Note that it is the installer that is seg-faulting -- not (yet at least) the agent after installation has completed.

Can you please test with 

--mode text


--mode xwindow 

and see if one of them works (as a workaround).

From one of our developers who was able to reproduce the original problem:

"Both work for me (sorry for not trying the obvious thing) on both 32bit installers (glibc 2.2 and 2.3).

Only starting without a --mode option fails for me."
