#3 Crash on latest linux builds

I've had this same problem with every linux build I've downloaded, including the very latest snapshot (down to 7.5Mb, woohoo ;) ). I don't know whether to post this to bugzilla or whether it's a problem with what I'm doing to run it. I do:
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=~/package export MOZILLA_HOME=~/package cd ~/package ./xpviewer
I get a LOAD of debug diagnostics, then a window that looks vaguely promising (is it supposed to have its own colormap?) and then a core dump.
The debug diagnostics look roughly like:
nsWidget::Resize(54, 40) - nsWindow 0xblahblahb no paint
after a load of those, I get the window appearing and the following text:
resize event handler: allocation->w=620 ... (other stuff) XP_GetString replacement needed
Then a ton more diagnostics which just look like hex numbers, then a message "Aborted (core dumped)".
Does this sound like a known problem with an easy fix (ie, I'm doing something wrong), or is it an unknown bug that I should file in Bugzilla?
I don't know where else to ask about this - I don't want to bother the people in the newsgroups unless it's a real problem.
Thanks, Stuart (sballard.netreach@net swap at and dot)
