Typing exit in urxvt freezes system

I'm just wondering if anyone else has come across this. (Mods have suggested that when it's a Rawhide issue, it goes here, in Fedora Focus rather than elsewhere.)

On both fluxbox and openbox--I haven't tried with other Desktop Environments or Window Managers--if I open a urxvt terminal (rxvt's unicode version) and type exit to close the window, my entire system freezes--I can't ssh into it from another machine, it doesn't respond to any keystrokes--I can't ctl+alt+del to shut down, Alt+F1 to get to a console, etc. The mouse will move, but won't do anything.

Anyone else using Rawhide with urxvt and seen this?

scottro,
I don't use urxvt, but I've come across the problem with rxvt, mrxvt, and ROXterm. I also get a bobble once in a while when I call Konsole from Eterm, but that may be a totally different problem.
I saw the same problem on the fedora-test-list or the fedora-devel-list , but I cannot remember the thread involved, or if there is a solution. If you go through the archives, try the devel list first. If I can find it, I'll try to post the relevant files here for you.

It might have been me posting on the test-list. Was it in the last couple of weeks?

(google didn't help and I'm too lazy to download all archives of the devel list. However, if you could tell me the approximate time you saw it, I'll grab those archives and search.)

Thanks very much.

Yes, it probably was me then. Answered by Andrew with a suggestion to install debuginfo and see if I got useful information. I posted back that unfortunately it hadn't.

However, although each day's update can bring bugs, they can also bring fixes, so I'll try again in a few days.

Thanks very much.
