Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'd like to know, myself. I've narrowed it down to bluefish, in my case. Are you running that? The weird thing is that bluefish's binary doesn't contain those words. A grep of the source dir turned up nothing and grepping some lib dirs showed only libgif and libungif contain that error message. But an 'ldd' of bluefish shows it doesn't even use those. So I don't know what's wrong with it. Bluefish seems fine, though. I compiled and installed April 15th and that sounds about like when the error started and launching all my regular apps didn't cause it until I launched bluefish. And you're right - googling turned up much of nothing except that a version of Endeavour2 would generate the same error and crash and burn, but Endeavour's a flaky app, anyway.
Maybe some of that will give you or somebody else hints. Maybe an update of lib(un)gif would somehow fix it.
Okay - good luck. (I was wrong in any case: it's actually IceWM that seems to be producing the message but only when I load bluefish. Ice does rely on libungif and when I launch bluefish in flux (which doesn't) I don't get the error message. Some weird conjunction of two specific apps and a lib.)
I'm using 1.2.14 pre9. I've tried pre10 and pre14 but, for reasons I haven't figured out, they compile and install fine but do all kinds of weird stuff afterwards. I think pre14 had the same 'GIF-LIB' plus a whole bunch more. I should try to sit down and figure out enough to file a bug but I haven't had time - other than this thing, pre9 is perfect so I keep using it. The upgrade attempts are more curiousity than real need.
So maybe it's something Ice+Bluefish and Ice+Opera have in common?
Btw.- Just did a little checking : It's definately an Ice-issue ; Even when NO(=0) programs have been run during the session , it still gives this error.
Now I'd like to know where that bug resides.....
