Trying again, because this is driving me nuts, this time running the program through gdb. Output is pretty much the same as the previous errors:

(gdb) start

I am suspecting it is something really simple, like a missing font in my system or so that is messing up, but I can't for the life of me figure out what it could be. I am also puzzled by the fact that snd works out of the box for me, whereas only some extensions are causing a crash. For what it's worth I asked Niklas (oddodd.org) to test this on his system, which is reasonably similar to mine (arch linux, sway), but he experiences no crashes.

Could someone that has this working please share their .xinitrc, or in some other way shed some light on this?
