The 'gftp' command on the command line is a script. It uses the DISPLAY
variable to find out if X is there, and will call the gftp-text command
if not. The gftp for X is usually gftp-gtk, so you can try to call this
without the script.

The segmentation fault can be anything. If you can produce a backtrace
output it'll help a lot. Did you install a binary package or compile the
source for yourself? Also, do you use the gftp-next version?
