Did you have the same version of murgaLua in the earlier Puppy version? If so, I'd think even more seriously that it might be an issue with Puppy.

What I would do first is check the Xorg log. If I didn't see anything interesting there, I'd redirect all output from the window manager to a file (which I already do anyway), and check that out after a crash. If you do "exec mywindowmanager &>filename" from .xinitrc (assuming Puppy uses .xinitrc) it should pick up all messages from murgaLua as well as those from other apps that might be doing something wrong at the time.

Thanks for your prompt reply mikshaw.

The version of murgaLua is the same in both cases.

The Xorg.0.log.old , which I think is the log from the last crash, differs from the current log only in as much as it shows this at the end :-

0: X(xf86SigHandler+0x77) [0x80bfd57]
1: [0xffffe400]
2: X [0x80efcb8]
3: X [0x80efdd9]
4: X(xf86RecolorCursor+0x107) [0x80f5137]
5: X [0x8159f5b]
6: X(ProcRecolorCursor+0xdf) [0x808d28f]
7: X [0x8146aa7]
8: X(Dispatch+0x1ab) [0x8087ddb]
9: X(main+0x4a4) [0x8070234]
10: /lib/ [0xb7d7920e]
11: X(FontFileCompleteXLFD+0x1e1) [0x806f591]

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11. Server aborting

(II) intel(0): xf86UnbindGARTMemory: unbind key 0
(II) intel(0): xf86UnbindGARTMemory: unbind key 1

I'm afraid this means nothing to me! I'll try your suggestion when I've worked out what it means. Puppy does indeed use .xinitrc - it's in the home directory.

Thanks mikshaw
