Apparently from what I have been able to gather, there is a bug with
wxWidgets, this is what seems to be crashing CodeBlocks. The crash
happen when a child window panel is moved around, trying to align it
to the side of the main window. I am sure the same bug will be
apparent on OpenSUSE x64.
This bug is only there for x64 Linux as I also have codeblocks running
on CentOS 5.3 which a only x32 and it is rock solid. It's ugly sister
Fedora11 seems to be alpha trash on my box?
I will give OpenSUSE x64 a go.
