Re: Crash from Gtk when running with remote display

I have a laptop (running Debian GNU/Linux unstable).  Running this
version of Emacs on it works well, but for some time now I've seen
crashes when running remotely with X11 redirection.

I log into my FreeBSD -current box, starting X11.  Then I log in via
ssh to my laptop, redirecting the X11 display to the FreeBSD box.
Then I start Emacs.  But it crashes when invoking the menu.

I have captured a session where I invoked Emacs (with "-q
-no-site-file"), then clicked on the Help menu item.  I'm not sure
what else to look for.  Also, I'm not sure whether and how this can be
reproduced without Debian GNU/Linux and FreeBSD.

Please let me know what I can do to debug.

If you step inside x_error_quitter you see that it does a sprintf to buf1.
Can you print buf1?  Also, can you tell me what version of GTK you are
using? If you could try a non-GTK build and see if the same thing happens
that would be valuable information. Does this only happen when using SSH
or also when SSH is not used?
