Within the last weeks we prepared a FC2 package [1] and ran into
similar problems that you report in this email. Mostly this have
been encoding problems: default locale on FC2 seems to be an UTF8
encoding while thubans internal encoding is latin1. If you pass such
a string with special characters to wxGTK this can cause a
segmentation fault[2]. There isn't any problem as long as you don't
use any special characters.  But if you use a special encoding it is
possible that some menus have special characters and then thuban

Some of these issues (for example the about-dialog and the default
projections) have been fixed in CVS but there is still a general
problem. It can be solved if thuban uses the user's encoding as
internal encoding (see bug 2585 [3]).

So my first question is: Which encoding do you use? And could you
perhaps change it to a latin1-encoding?

[2] In my opinion this is a bug in wxGTK since it shouldn't crash
but perhaps show the unknown characters as question mark.
