On my computer it happens because I use Xinerama and RandR is not 
available. I think the non-availability of RandR is the problem, 
apparently the program uses some randr calls and doesn’t check if they 
are available.

I hope for a new X server with RandR 1.5, where I can throw away 
Xinerama and use RandR for good.
