Xemacs crashes on me at startup:

	x54209:stas0006>ulimit -c unlimited

	Fatal error (11).

	Your files have been auto-saved.
	Use `M-x recover-session' to recover them.

	Your version of XEmacs was distributed with a PROBLEMS file that  may describe
	your crash, and with luck a workaround.  Please check it first, but do report
	the crash anyway.  Please report this bug by invoking M-x report-emacs-bug,
	or by selecting `Send Bug Report' from the Help menu.  If necessary, send
	ordinary email to `'.  *MAKE SURE* to include the XEmacs
	configuration from M-x describe-installation, or equivalently the file
	Installation in the top of the build tree.

	*Please* try *hard* to obtain a C stack backtrace; without it, we are unlikely
	to be able to analyze the problem.  Locate the core file produced as a result
	of this crash (often called `core' or `core.<process-id>', and located in
	the directory in which you started XEmacs or your home directory), and type

	  gdb /home/users/x54209/bin/xemacs core

	then type `where' at the debugger prompt.  No GDB on your system?  You may
	have DBX, or XDB, or SDB.  (Ask your system administrator if you need help.)
	If no core file was produced, enable them (often with `ulimit -c unlimited'
	in case of future recurrance of the crash.

	Lisp backtrace follows:

	  # (unwind-protect ...)
	  make-device(x nil)
	  # bind (display)
	  # bind (debugger debug-on-error command-line-args-left)
	  # (condition-case ... . ((t (byte-code "      ??" ... 1))))
	  # bind (error-data)
	  # (condition-case ... . error)
	  # (catch top-level ...)
	Segmentation Fault (core dumped)

No core is produced though:

	x54209:stas0006>ls -l core
	ls: cannot access core: No such file or directory

Here's the Xemacs version:

	x54209:stas0006>xemacs -nw --version
	XEmacs 21.4 (patch 21) "Educational Television" [Lucid] (sparc-sun-solaris2.10, Mule) of Thu Feb 21 2008 on stas0006

Oh btw `xemacs -nw` appears to work flawlessly.

X server is WRQ Reflection X 12.0.0 running on Windows XP Professional Version 2002 with Service Pack 2. All other X clients I have tried work without problem.

Here's how I built my Xemacs:

	./configure --with-mule --prefix ~ --pdump
	make install

Here's my OS version:

	x54209:stas0006>uname -a
	SunOS stas0006 5.10 Generic_118833-24 sun4v sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-T200 Solaris
