[BUG] Problem with gnome-terminal

I am running all the 'October GNOME' packages.

For some reason, all of a sudden my gnome-terminal broke - I have a standard
RedHat 6.0 system, but recently, I started playing around with my bashrc
file and today tried to install some VGA fonts. I also installed svgatext
and SVGAlibs - I don't know if that is related. Anyway, at first
gnome-terminal would quit and the error on the console is:
Error: unable to fork: Success
I kept repeating gnome-terminal and sometimes it told me that my Unix98 ptys
were not set-up correctly - but they are. I checked, and even Eterm was
using them!!! Anyway, I recompiled with debugging info and this is what I
got - Note: I'm using bash2 v2.03 - After running gnome-terminal a few times
it now CONSISTENTLY crashes and brings up gnome-segv
Also note, when I login as ROOT, gnome-terminal works fine, this is only
when I login as a user.

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Any advice or information is greatly appreciated - If you need more
information please tell me, and I'll tell you :)
