I also cannot reproduce this, nor can I with 1.8.4.  Without a stack
trace with symbols, I cannot recommend a next step other than to upgrade
to 1.8.4 from my CVS repo.  You can do this by checking out the
ports-stable module per the instructions at
http://www.marcuscom.com:8080/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi.  Get the marcusmerge
script, too, to merge the ports from my CVS tree into your main ports
tree.  If you don't want to do this, you can wait for the ports freeze
to lift, and GnuCash 1.8.4 is committed to the main tree.
