I experienced the same on current shr:

root at om-gta02 ~ # cat /etc/shr-version 
SHR -20101002
Built from branch: org.openembedded.dev
Revision: 5788b22be688b7c2dd2ee9aca853aaff81b75d22

Something seems to go wrong while the window and its widgets is being
It's Xorg that receives an Segfault:
Here's the output from /var/log/Xorg.0.log:

[2108227.080] Segmentation fault at address 0x4e1742
Fatal server error:

for additional information.

Nothing more.
I guess it has something to do with pygtk and it's displaying of images
or widgets. Displaying the dictator window without making the widgets
(buttons...) visible works. I have do find out what exactly causes X to
crash. Seems strange.

Thanks for your report.

Does anyone have an idea about what changed during shr-updgrades and
could have possibly caused the error?
