[possible bug] crash in debugger in R9B on Mandrake 9

Greetings,

While working on making an Erlang RPM for mandrake 9, i found the
following trouble :

I launch erl, then start the debugger (debugger:start()). Everything ok
then. But, after maximizing the debugger window, and then moving the
mouse, the debugger crashes with the following message :

-=-=-=-

[ otp_src_R9B-0]$ erl
Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.2 [source] [hipe]

Eshell V5.2  (abort with ^G)
1> debugger:start().
{ok,<0.30.0>}
2> 
=ERROR REPORT==== 26-Oct-2002::12:34:29 ===
Error in process <0.30.0> with exit value:
{badarith,[{dbg_ui_mon_win,handle_event,2},{dbg_ui_mon,loop,1}]}

-=-=-=-

Note that i've run the test with the original source tarball, and the
result is the same.

Mickael Remond kindly tests his own Erlang installation, also on
Mandrake 9, and doesn't have the problem.

We're currently trying to find out where that may come from, but still,
any hint welcome ! :-)
