Problems with timer subsystem

It seems that initializing timer subsystem causes my app using SDL to
crash on FreeBSD 4.7-RELEASE. I’ve tested it on testgl.c, OR-ing
SDL_INIT_TIMER with SDL_INIT_VIDEO where it calls SDL_Init()… it
also crashed. It also happens if I use SDL_InitSubSystem() later after
setting the video mode. Both programs used OpenGL, so it might be what
is causing the problem (I also have NVidia drivers installed). Any
clues on what’s happening would be greatly appreciated!

Oh, by the way, I tried both 1.2.4 and 1.2.5 (not from the ports, but
downloaded from It doesn’t seem to matter.–
