Re: X segmentation fault when particular application attempts to open a window

Thanks for the excellent bug report.
You're welcome. Thank you for the prompt response.
I've uploaded 1.12.0-5 which hopefully contains a fix for this crash.
Good news, ferret works fine with 1.12.0-5.
This crash was caused by the server being unable to find the bitmap which the
application wants to use for it's icon, it's not clear why this is happening,
so I would be interested to know if the application icon is correct or not.

The icon that appears on the taskbar when I open a ferret window is a generic Xorg icon. I'm not certain if there is an actual icon for ferret that should be appearing. I get a similar generic icon when the X server displaying the window is being run on Linux, so this behavoir is not unique to Cygwin. So it seems like a feature of the application, or the installation of the application. The application works otherwise.

Thanks again for the prompt response and fix,
