I assume when gnubg dies, it generates a core file in the current
directory. Could you do the following:

$ cd /tmp
$ gnubg 
  go to settings->appearance so gnubg crashes
  look for a file core.gnubg or gnubg.core or whatever your system
  uses for corefile names - say it's gnubg.core
$ script coredump
  script is started file is coredump
$ gdb /usr/local/bin/gnubg coredump
  lots of startup messages
(gdb) bt
  you enter the backtrace command
  you get lots of lines of output (I hope)
(gdb) quit
$ exit
  script completed. File is coredump

Then post the file coredump to the list (or just mail it to me)
