AS 1.7.104 crashing

Hello,

I don't know if this was recently posted to the list or not. I had to do
a complete re-install of my system yesturday and lost some files in the
process.

I'm running AS 1.7.104 (compiled with the --enable-different-looknfeels
option) and when ever I attempt to use "update all" from the start menu,
the xserver crashes.

OS: RedHat 5.2, Kernel 2.0.36. wmconfig is disabled.

No other programs were running (besides my background daemons.)

The complete output from the console when the server was running is
below.

A .AfterStep-errors file was not generated.

There also wasn't a core dump.

There was nothing logged through syslogd.

(If there is anything else you need, please let me know.)

I was playing around with my ~/G/L/A/feels directory when the crash
first happened. I completely deleted the directory and restarted. When I
attempted to update all it crashed again. I then completely deleted the
GNUstep tree. Again, AS crashes when I attempt to update all.

The only other thing I have done is added a large number of jpeg files
to the /usr/local/share/afterstep/backgrounds directory.
