I think there may be a bug in the latest gtk2.  When I compile Emacs
with gtk2, it ocasionally crashes in gdk_pixbuf_new_from_file.
If Emacs is compiled against Xaw3d instead, it's rock solid.  I've
found some bug reports from Linux people too but no clear solution:

So it's likely not a NetBSD bug.

 is especially attractive, not only because it can be economically
 and scientifically rewarding, but also because it can be an aesthetic
 experience much like composing poetry or music."
