Journal salimma's Journal: Theme oddities

I don't run Mandrake, but in the course of browsing VMware newsgroups I come across to this reference:

I get corruption in the guest OS, much like memory errors in a real world.
I'm using Mandrake 9.2 rc2, kernel 2.4.22-10mdk and VMware-workstation
4.0.5 (also used 4.0.0 previously). Filesystems used xfs, but switched to

The guest OS is Redhat 7.3.

Below is the error message that is the most frequent. At other times I get
a kernel OOPS in the guest system. Also I'm using virtual disks.

Errors can crop up quickly or after several hours.

And the solution? Uninstall the Galaxy theme engine. Why a theme engine would interact with a program running on the computer, I don't know. This certainly is not the kind of thing one expects.
