Running gnubg with the GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS environment variable set to true
seems to help.
Googling for this finds many reports of "Ubuntu broke my application" but
what's strange is that many are rather old and relate to Ubuntu releases
where gnubg runs fine.
I didn't found anything obvious about fixing that in the application
(although I don't know much about GUI programming and may not recognize
relevant information if I saw it). Still it seems likely that something
that used to work, and still does on other platforms, is not coded
defensively enough for recent Ubuntu releases.
