GNUCASH has been recently broken in FC4

GNUCASH was working well for me but was recently broken. I suspect that some update did this.

This is what I see from the command line:

$ gnucash
Gdk-ERROR **: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
serial 476 error_code 8 request_code 145 minor_code 3

Steps (unsuccessful) done to resolve:
1. Rebooted with older kernel 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 (current kernel 2.6.12-1.1398_FC4)
2. Backed out qt-3.3.4-15.1 to originally installed qt-3.3.4-14 (this was a recent upgrade)
3. Removed gnucash and reinstallled (yum install gnucash)
4. Downloaded gnucash (1.8.11-3) source rpm and rebuilt rpm

I'm out of ideas ... anybody resolve this?

Followup - gnucash works fine if I log into gnome as root ... this looks like either a permission problem or my user environment is messed up.

Still have no idea ...

Never mind.

Apparently gnucash doesn't work with some of the themes ... notably bluecurve.

I don't know if my themes are corrupted or there is a real bug somewhere

I am completely up to date and have no problem with gnucash. I tried bluecurve and there was still no problem.

I had a similar problem quite a while back after an upgrade, and it was a permissions problem.
