I guess is you're being hit by the "other" GDK error. So far we've
identified two conditions that trigger it :
-When running AIGLX and the Composite extension, which can be worked
around with what Irene suggested.
-When using non-DRI GLX rendering with Mesa. DRI works fine, X11 software
rendering is ok but slow, software GLX crashes. The problems is actually
somewhere between wxWidgets, Mesa and Xserver, according to an X/Mesa
developper. You can have a look at [1] for more informations.

My guess would be that you run with DRI disabled...
