The application crashes with the following message:

There was a thread[1] on the VMware forums that discussed this error.  The
workaround is to add "VMWARE_USE_SHIPPED_GTK=no" to the command-line. "VMWARE_USE_SHIPPED_GTK=no vmware". My guess of the cause is that the libraries shipped with VMware are not compatible with the libraries shipped by Fedora 8. It is probably that the, dynamically loaded by gtk, needs a
symbol not provided by the old version of GTK available with VMware.  The
solution is to use the system GTK.
