The "checking sources" implies you are NOT running a 1.7.7 system.
Perhaps you have remnants of multiple versions lying around? Are you
sure you ran a successful "make install" after "make"?

THIS seems to imply that your X server or window manager shut down on

This is strange...

Try removing all remnants of older versions of gnucash (1.6 and 1.7),
then installing 1.7.7.
What are the contents of /usr/share/gnucash after you install 1.7.7?

I find it strange that you have -helper but not -check; they are
both installed on my system.

This implies that some process or connection is dying.. You cut out
the place where fd 6 was opened, so I have no clue what it is. But my
guess is that it's the connection to your X server.
