Do so at your leisure, if you'd like me to test more.  As it is known
how to replicate the crash, should this arise again it should be easy to
direct reporters to this report.

As I'm on Sid, I look forward to 4.8 moving in after Squeeze is
released.  I'll note that selecting Test after selecting the Balou splash
did not cause a crash abd the splash went through its expected routine.
Only upon start from gdm or startxcfe4 did the crash occur.

At the time I filed the report, I didn't realize it was self-inflicted.
Please downgrade the severity of this report to Normal if possible.

Thanks for your help.
