Inspired by some comments on the darwinports list about bugs in
libgnomecanvas and Intel Macs, I tried recompiling libgnomecanvas and
can now successfully open registers and enter transactions in GnuCash
on my Dual Core iMac.
The darwinports email is here: http://www.opendarwin.org/pipermail/
The 'fix' is to recompile libgnomecanvas at optimization level -
O1. I adjusted fink's .info file for libgnomecanvas2 accordingly,
rebuilt and installed the debs, and installed gnucash 2.0.1 from the
tarball using the wiki instructions for OS X.
Seems to work fine -- registers, reports, etc., and I'm impressed
with the speed on this machine.
It is still a bit of a work around and it's unclear to me if this is
a gcc bug (as suggested in the email referenced above) or what... but
