H.G.'s comment on this from the email thread:

"That an engine is crashing is never the fault of XBoard.
It just means the engine is buggy or incorrectly installed."

Obviously that's true.  However, I'm not entirely clear on what happened from the discussion -- does the GTK warning come from XBoard or the engine? -- but I don't know how to repro this and try it myself.  So I'm closing it.

Anyway, it says (xboard:pid): Gtk-WARNING **: Invalid input string when using ru_RU.UTF8 locale.

Maybe fixed after FairyMax installation.

Any engine is crashing when using ru_RU locale, so chess players with Russian OS are forced to use other locale (like LC_ALL=POSIX xboard).
