xfwm4-settings core dump (4.6.1)

Hi,

on a redhat 5.3 distribution I'm trying to build xfce 4.6.1 on an isolate installation prefix. I think I have installed in this same prefix all required dependencies. After installation and after adding xfce to my gdm configuration I can successfully login into the xfce desktop (xfwm up and running.) However, when I execute xfwm4-settings it cores dump as shown in the back trace included below (some variable values also included.)

For some reason, at xfwm4-settings.c:480 a call to xfconf_channel_get_property returns a 'value' which passed to xfwm_settings_title_alignment_property_changed makes the program to crash.

Could this be just a misconfiguration somewhere in my ~/.config files or perhaps a bigger show stopper to my attempt to build on top of RH5.3?

many thanks,
Rodrigo

Welcome to the Forum Rodrigo,

Unfortunately to get an answer you'll probably have to post to the Xfce Mailing List, you can find the ML info here.
