Gdk-ERROR **: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)

A little difficulty with the latest version(s) of Amaya, platform is a DELL 
GX150 (second hand & cheap) 128Mbyte Mem, DEBIAN Sarge 3.1r0a (Official - 
whatever that means :-)
 As I successfully dpkg -i the "amaya_wx-9.3-1_i386.deb" distribution after 
removing the DEBIAN 8.5 version and found there wasn't an html sub-dir in the 
usr/lib/Amaya-9.3.1/doc directory, dpkg -r'd it and tried the 
"amaya_gtk-8.8.3-1_i386.deb" instead.
Hmmm, it dpkg'd allright and there was a link for the html sub-dir in place 
(sort of guessing that what was missing in the _wx version - yet to verify).
Bit of a pain and learn curve with all the different package handlers in 
Debian - was a lot easier on Solaris. Cutting to the chase, on invoking Amaya  
_gtk version, had the following:-

Gdk-ERROR **: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
  serial 142 error_code 2 request_code 51 minor_code 0

Like, splinters in the fingers scenario - compared the html'd download with 
the FTP version both at 6407542 bytes and passed cmp perfectly ok - would 
have preferred MD5 as a confidence boost. The _wx version was 10600394 bytes 
significantly larger but haven't done any cmp - is there any major difference 
between them and why is the _wx over 50% larger than the _gtk one?

Balls in whoever's court as intend going back to Deb's old version after a bit 
more toying around - if there is anything further required for information 
please let me know as I would like to use the latest and greatest.

Kind regards,

Adrian Clarke.
