However only some gtk+ applications are affected. XMMS works fine here, 
But other ugly stuff like e.g. xzgv (some ugly image viever) does manage 
to hard freeze my iBook (Radeon, PowerPC obviously). I'm currently 
writing something important on the box so I'll try later if the 
environment variable does prevent X to hard freeze the machine. I'll 
also review if the same happens on my IA-32 box (and so is a generic 
issue e.g. in the radeon driver?).

Have fun,
