I'm unable to use xfig -- dumps core when I click on File, Edit, or
View.  I had used it successfully a few months ago, with monolithic
xorg; I'm using it (freshly compiled) with modular xorg.  Here's the

#0  0xbb8c4e67 in kill () from /usr/lib/
#1  0xbb9674d8 in abort () from /usr/lib/
#2  0x080b07ec in goodbye ()

The message displayed when it crashes is:

xfig: figure empty or not modified - exiting
Abort (core dumped)
