I don't get a segfault, but I get pcmanfm: symbol lookup error: pcmanfm: undefined symbol: fm_path_new_for_str

Try with the new release of pcmanfm but I don't had this issue with the 0.9.8-1

More details on the segfault after trying to open pcmanfm 3 times (thus 3 instances). This is with 0.9.8-2 as well.

Also, not sure if it matters, but I'm running x86_64 on all the machines I use.

FYI, I wrote a patch that should apply to latest git trying to revert two commits (they can't be simply reverted directly, code in git changed) related to the addition of a new IPC

It looks as if the IPC issue has been fixed upstream.
Latest git (without patch) compiles and works well.
Master is now at 0.9.9
Just keeping us all on our toes I guess
