Hi,

I found a workaround.

Let me add some informations about Debian gtk-x11 library : it seems
that the 2.12 version was accepted in unstable on september, 20th.
Before that, that was the 2.10.12 one.

Then I found some informations on Debian bugtracker, which led me to an
Eclipse crash which seems similar :

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=443408

Within that report, I found a workaround : if you add
G_SLICE="always-malloc" in your environment, Amaya works again !

Bye,
