My guess is that this happens because glib was compiled with debugging turned
on (G_ENABLE_DEBUG). So instead of quitting cleanly, you crash with a SIGTRAP
signal when g_error() is called. If my theory is right, then maybe some of the
other "GnuCash crashes when X happens" bugs are coming from this.
If it's worth any further discussion, maybe this ought to move over to the
developer mailing list. I don't know how to move this there, or even how to
properly reply to my own original post, I'm afraid.
