It is not only supposed to work for Windows and Solaris. There might
be some unfortunate naming that gave you this idea. But there
is no technical reason why it should not work on Linux.
On the other hand it is currently only tested and commercially
supported for Windows and Solaris.

Without the crash report it is hard say anything! Probably it's not
the srollable cursors problem with 2.x drivers as you managed to
connect to the server.
