    FC 10: xemacs crashes on Options, Help

    >Package xemacs-21.5.28-9.fc10.i386 already installed and latest version

    The only problem is that it crashes when I click on Options or Help in the menu bar.
    I was able to capture in a console.

    There was no core file generated
    -----------------
    Fatal error: assertion failed, file menubar-x.c, line 579, ABORT()

    Fatal error (6).

    Your files have been auto-saved.
    Use `M-x recover-session' to recover them.

    Your version of XEmacs was distributed with a PROBLEMS file that may describe
    your crash, and with luck a workaround. Please check it first, but do report
    the crash anyway.

    Please report this bug by invoking M-x report-emacs-bug, or by selecting
    `Send Bug Report' from the Help menu. If that won't work, send ordinary
    email to `xemacs-beta@xemacs.org'. *MAKE SURE* to include this entire
    output from this crash, especially including the Lisp backtrace, as well as
    the XEmacs configuration from M-x describe-installation (or equivalently,
    the file `Installation' in the top of the build tree).

    *Please* try *hard* to obtain a C stack backtrace; without it, we are unlikely
    to be able to analyze the problem. Locate the core file produced as a result
    of this crash (often called `core' or `core.<process-id>', and located in
    the directory in which you started XEmacs or your home directory), and type

    gdb /usr/bin/xemacs core

    then type `where' at the debugger prompt. No GDB on your system? You may
    have DBX, or XDB, or SDB. (Ask your system administrator if you need help.)
    If no core file was produced, enable them (often with `ulimit -c unlimited')
    in case of future recurrance of the crash.

    Lisp backtrace follows:

    # (unwind-protect ...)
    # (unwind-protect ...)
    # (unwind-protect ...)
    # (unwind-protect ...)
    # (unwind-protect ...)
    # (unwind-protect ...)
    # (unwind-protect ...)
    # (unwind-protect ...)
    # bind (inhibit-quit)
    # (condition-case ... . error)
    # (catch top-level ...)

    Update:

    when invoked as "xemacs -vanilla"

    it doesn't crash, thus it must be something in my .xemacs files, which work on another PC, but ...
