I've found it fairly easy to crash on multiple Linux distributions  
(never mind the non-Linux ones).  Run it with all defaults, it's  
*probably* okay... don't try to configure it.  (I used to crash the  
control center all the time just by trying to look at all the  
available themes, before I gave up and switched to KDE.)
