Hi !

I have a segfault in Kicad when performing specific action on a debian SID with FVWM
window manager and a specific perl script running : focus-link.pl :
http://www.fvwm.org/documentation/manpages/stable/focus-link.php (version 2.0)

You can have some backtrace there : https://bugs.launchpad.net/kicad/+bug/1345596
Most show the segfault come from the libwxgtk3.0 library.

Steps to reproduce :
* Install kicad (uses libwxgtk3.0)
* Install fvwm
* Configure FVWM to start focus-link.pl script on startup as specified here :
* Start pcbnew (part of kicad)
* Open the menu "Tools --> DRC"
* Click on "Start DRC" (top left button).

When I remove the focus-link.pl script I have no more crashes.
