I just recompiled imlib2, after fixing some bugs which used to be 
warnings (something about labels after block statements) .It compiled 
fine but I till got the error.
Then I re installed an older imlib from packages, and it worked... Go

Whoa, you got my knees knocking with this suggestion. Much as I'd love 
to (I mean it!), I haven't the time to get into alpha stuff. I just need 
it to work for now. When I finish my studies I'd be glad to help out by 
debugging alpha versions.

at first pop. My stuff is working now, and I know where to look if it 
happens again.
