Did you search this list? I placed it at yesterday as someone else 
mentioned some packages haven't included it

True, but please bear in mind that gideon is still alpha software - it's 
expected to crash now and then.

Alpha sofware often works very well on the developers' machines but can crash 
a lot more when run in different environments. The reason for releasing alpha 
software is to get bug reports from people trying to run the program in many 
different circumstances.

I imagine it's something about your system that's causing the crashes, as 
obviously it's not happening for most people. I'd advise trying the latest 
CVS, and if the crashes still occur report the problem and include a 
backtrace. This way, developers who might not have encountered the problem 
can try to fix it.

Otherwise, if you're after a stable development environment I'd advise waiting 
till the final version is released.
