Hmm, shouldn't do?  The code is supposed to account for that, but you 
could be right...  Need to provide more info...

Yep, bug introduced in the last big goom update... If you read back in 
the list we can trace the segfault, but it hasn't proved easy to find

Do you have a funny non-square screen and have used the X displaysize 
variable to set the proper DPI?
