thanks, i will add this to the FAQ.
(btw, GEM_SINGLE_CONTEXT=1 at compile-time means nothing and is ignored;
seems i was unclear about this)

one last thing for all the brave ubuntu testers: could you try to find
out what get's posted when Gem crashes?

% pd -stderr -lib Gem > gemcrash.log 2>&1
..create a gemwindow (and crash X)
..send me the gemcrash.log
