This is an Xaw3d bug: sizing is not done by XBoard but by the window manager. XBoard specifies that the top of the lower pane and the bottom of the upper pane should be 'chained' proprotionally (XtRubber). If Xaw3d does have a funny interpretation of 'proportionally' that eventually leads to negative size and crashing, there is nothing we can do about it. With plain Xaw it works as it should (according to Xaw specs).

Just do not bild XBoard with Xaw3d

A bug has been reported in Debian. See http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=604610

I thought that it is fixed in the development version, but I was wrong, I can reproduce it with the latest git. It only happens when xboard is built with xaw3d enabled.
