GNUstep applications crashing X

I tryed to use GNUstep applications on my system (x86, debian, XFree
4.2.1), and each application I tryed crashed my X server before I could
see anything on the screen (GNUmail, Gworkspace, examples module from

This has been the case either with debian packages I installed with
apt-get or when I compiled the whole GNUstep environment from CVS. 

I first suspected the nvidia drivers (an old version that has been
otherwise perfectly stable on my system for years), but switching to the
XFree nv driver does not make any difference. 

Yesterday, I checked out from the CVS and compiled without any problem
the modules make, base, gui, back and examples. When starting an exmple
program (openapp Calculator.app), I got the same effect as with the
debian packages: after a few seconds, XFree crashes and the display
manager restarts.

I have no big experience in debugging applications under linux, so if
you need any more information, please tell me how to obtain them. I just
tryed to look at the output of strace, here is what I got just before
the crash:

gettimeofday({1059420377, 644321}, NULL) = 0
poll([{fd=3, events=POLLIN}], 1, 82)    = 0
wait4(4835, 0x816eb6c, WNOHANG, NULL)   = 0
gettimeofday({1059420377, 744217}, NULL) = 0
gettimeofday({1059420377, 744283}, NULL) = 0
gettimeofday({1059420377, 744350}, NULL) = 0
gettimeofday({1059420377, 744402}, NULL) = 0
gettimeofday({1059420377, 744465}, NULL) = 0
gettimeofday({1059420377, 744516}, NULL) = 0
gettimeofday({1059420377, 744579}, NULL) = 0
poll(X connection to :0.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).

Does anybody have an idea about what's happening here? 

Thank you,
