Could you remove or backup ~/.hydrogen and retry?

A trace output would be useful to see what's going wrong. You can run
hydrogen against gdb.

It's actually from Fedora itself. I'm one of the package maintainers.
FYI, there is hydrogen 0.9.4beta3 in the Fedora testing repo. I will
keep that one in testing until 0.9.4 is released officially (which
should be soon). But I have been using it for a while and it seems
pretty stable. It uses qt4, whereas hydrogen 0.9.3 uses qt3.

If you have time to test it, go ahead.
