Why does Gem crash when sending [destroy( to [gemwin]?

Up to Table of Contents

This FAQ applies to: 0.91.1

After working a bit with Gem with my intel-graphics card, I incidentally closed the Gem-window by sending a [destroy( message to the [gemwin] object. This crashed Pd with a "Segmentation Fault".

Hmm, even though this question is frequently asked, there is no satisfying answer to it yet. Chances are high that something will change if you use the GEM_SINGLE_CONTEXT environmental variable, as described here

Why does Gem crash when closing the Gem-window?
I made am running Gem in fullscreen mode. In order to be able to still access my patch after the Gem-window has taken full control over my desktop, i use [gemmouse] to trigger a [destroy( message whenever i click the right mouse-button. While this closes the Gem-window, it also crashes Pd :-(
