I am not sure if this is the problem, but I had some problems using open office with core dumps all over the place. They had a discussion in the mailing list there, and it turned out to be corrupt fonts, most were from the truetype fonts I brought in from microsoft. Not the free ones but the ones the OS uses. There was some procedure they prescribed for finding out which ones were corrupt. I think it was using xfontsel or gfontsel or something like that. I clean these fonts out and it started working. It may be worth a shot.
Anything shot in the dark would be to try strace'ng it.
strace kylix > /tmp/kylix.log 2>&1
Make sure that kylix is the actual executable and not a script. Then look towards the end of the file for any tell tale signs. Hope this helps.
Hi Thanks for the reply, it didn't help. It looks as if I'll need to do some looking for software incompatabilities and the like, it looks as if I'm the only person having this problem.
