[R] R --gnome segfaults on RH 6.0 with R-0.65.0

Have just compiled and installed R-65.0 on RH 6.0 with all the latest
updates for RH and Gnome (including `libglade-0.3-1.i386.rpm' and
`libglade-devel-0.3-1.i386.rpm' from RH ftp).

R.X11 works OK.

But when I try `R --gnome' I get a segmentation fault/core dump
with the messages:

Gdk-CRITICAL **: file gdkfont.c: line 174 (gdk_font_id): assertion `font
!= NULL' failed.

Gdk-CRITICAL **: file gdkfont.c: line 133 (gdk_font_ref): assertion `font
!= NULL' failed.

.................etc., etc.

1) `gdb' shows (for what it is worth):
   Core was generated by `/usr/local/R65/lib/R/bin/R.gnome'
   #0  0x4024034d in gtk_text_size_request ()

2) I can't find the file `gdkfont.c' anywhere on my system.
   Should I be able to and if so can anybody tell me which package/library
   contains `gdkfont.c' ?

Is this my stupidity or worth reporting as a bug or already known?
