gq has been a necessary evil in my life for some time now. I need a graphical LDAP client for use on the CompSoc systems, but gq (to be fair, the versions of gq packaged for Ubuntu) seems to be very buggy, segfaulting all over the place if you try to do anything other than browse with it.

Last week, after upgrading to a 64bit version of Ubuntu for the first time, I finally ditched gq, after running into identical symptoms to this Debian bug.

The good news is that there's an alternative that actually works: it's called Luma.

Have fun.
