Cool SegFault with transmission-gtk fc-16


Hello, Friends, I hope all is well.

I was impressed with how far preupgrade had come: I was able to roll over to fc-16 from Fedora 15 with so little trouble it was actually anticlimactic- I almost couldn't tell I was using Verne because KDE kept all of my old settings. So everything is working fine except for transission-gtk . It opens and runs normally, but closes itself sporadically about every 20 or so minutes. when I run it from the command line, it looks like this:
Code:
[zer0@home ~]$ transmission-gtk  (So now the program runs normally for about 20 mins, then:)  
segmentation fault
[zer0@home ~] $
I reinstalled everything gtk but the problem persists. Of course, I'm not here asking for advice on doing anything I shouldn't- my company uses .torrent to transfer large files, and I also prefer to torrent Fedora install media, et caetera. Also, can I use yum or rpm to ensure I have the right rpmfusion repos enabled? Thanks in advance for your time.

You might try installing the transmission-debuginfo package. Then, launch transmission-gtk with gdb:
Code:
gdb trasnmission-gtk
Then type run

When the program crashes, type bt to BackTrace the stack. Copy and paste the output and file a bug with Fedora.
