Did you ever resolve this problem?  I have had similar crashes.

> I compiled fltk-1.1.6 on Slackare 10 using gcc-3.3.4 and installed it in /usr. I also have fltk-1.0.11 installed in /usr/local/bin compiled with gcc-2.95.3 for use with POSE, the old Palm emulator. Both compiled fine and coexist happily on the same system. POSE comiled, installed and runs OK.
